A 52-year-old Canadian man was arrested Friday for allegedly striking a number of parked vehicles in the town of Lake Tomahawk.
According to a press release from Oneida County sheriff's captain Tyler Young, a call came in at approximately 6:09 p.m. reporting a southbound vehicle had struck several parked vehicles along State Highway 47 between Choate Boulevard and Violet Drive. A total of 13 vehicles, all unoccupied, were struck.
Robert Allan Johnson, 52, of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada was issued multiple traffic citations in connection with the incident and was also arrested for felony second degree recklessly endangering safety.
He posted a $7,166.80 bond Saturday and was released.
He appeared in Oneida County Circuit Court on Monday at which time prosecutors announced that bail jumping and disorderly conduct charges had been filed after Johnson was found at local hotel Saturday in a state of intoxication in violation of his bond conditions. He is now being held on $15,000 cash bail pending a preliminary hearing.
