COWETA, Okla. (KFOR) – A 21-year-old Oklahoma man has been arrested after crashing his pickup truck onto a high school football field.

Around 11 p.m. on Aug. 28, officers with the Coweta Police Department were called to the school’s football field after receiving a report about a pickup truck on the turf.

The truck crashed through fences and the bleachers of the football field.

Authorities say the truck was found at the five-yard line on the field.

Officers arrested 21-year-old Matthew Jenkins on complaints of driving under the influence, transporting an open container of alcohol, obstruction, and driving left of center.
