A Hopkinsville man allegedly admitted to falsely reporting his vehicle stolen yesterday morning after wrecking it while driving drunk.
The arrest card for 20-year old Michael Todd Choate of Hopkinsville says Hopkinsville Police were called to Choate’s home for the report of a stolen 1997 Lincoln.
Officers later found the car wrecked on Sorth 19th St. at the Twyman St. intersection with moderate front end damage. Police say Choate admitted to drinking alcoholic beverages and having an accident Friday night.
He said he left the scene on foot and called a woman to come pick him up. He reported his car stolen yesterday morning, after being warned against false reporting laws. Choate was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident and falsely reporting an incident.
