BLYTHEVILLE, Ark. (KAIT) - Police arrested a man for DWI after they say he drove his vehicle into a home.

According to the preliminary incident report, the crash happened around 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20, in the 900-block of South Parkside.

When officers arrived at the scene they found 28-year-old Calvin Ned Redmon of Blytheville standing in front of the home’s handicapped ramp, seemingly “unaffected by the accident.”

Those inside the home told police that “everything in the house shook on impact,” but otherwise they were okay.

While questioning Redmon, investigators noticed he had a “hard time answering basic questions.” The report noted his speech was slurred, his pupils were constricted, and he had an “odor of intoxicants.”

When he began to bleed from his mouth, officers escorted him to Great River Medical Center for treatment. While there, they obtained a search warrant for a nurse to collect two vials of Redmon’s blood for evidence.

Police then took Redmon to the Mississippi County Jail where he was booked in on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, driving on a suspended license, and no liability insurance.
