LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A Lafayette man faces nine charges after crashing his car while doing donuts in the Beck Lane Payless parking lot.
Steven Curtis was arrested on Monday. Prosecutors say Curtis was driving at more than twice the legal alcohol limit when he took two friends to the Payless, and started doing donuts in the parking lot.
They hit a tree and abandoned the car on foot, just as police arrived.
Officers said when they caught up to Curtis, he threatened them and tried to kick them.
His charges include operating while intoxicated, leaving the scene of an accident, resisting law enforcement, and a felony count for the battery to a public safety officer.
