MADISON — A Madison man who in December crashed his snowmobile into a parked car on a residential street has been charged with operating after suspension and criminal operating under the influence.
Jeffrey Hayden, 30, is scheduled to appear on March 5 in Skowhegan District Court, according to Sgt. David Trask, of the Madison Police Department.
Hayden crashed the snowmobile during a snowstorm Dec. 29 into a parked car on John Street.
The car was totaled in the crash, Trask said. No one was injured.
A blood-alcohol test showed that Hayden had a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.21 percent, more than twice the legal limit, Trask said.
The charge of operating under the influence was elevated to a criminal charge because Hayden has two prior convictions, Trask said.
Hayden is a military veteran and has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, according to Trask, and he is enrolling in a rehabilitation program at VA Maine Healthcare Systems-Togus.Rachel Ohm — 612-2368 email@example.com
