A drunk driver barreled into a front yard on Columbia Street on April 23 and was arrested after a desperate run to evade cops.

Police said that a witness saw the driver smash his Nissan into a fence near Baltic Street at around 11:30 pm — and then get into an argument with the homeowner over who was going to pay for the damage.

As police cruisers arrived, the wobbly 21-year-old took off running, but was quickly caught by the sober officers.

He stunk of cheap booze, but refused to take a field sobriety test. He later admitted to downing two shots earlier in the night, cops said.
