SUAMICO, Wis. (AP) -- A husband and wife from Suamico (soo-AH'-mih-koh) narrowly escaped serious injury when an apparent drunken driver smashed through the wall of their home and into their living room.
Neil Vannieuwenhoven tells WBAY-TV  he and his wife were watching TV in the living room Tuesday night and he left the room for a couple minutes. Vannieuwenhoven says he heard the driver's tire blow when he hit the curb outside the house and within seconds the car was in the living room and stopped inches from his wife.
Vannieuwenhoven says the living room is in shambles, but he's glad no one was hurt. The driver was arrested for suspicion of drunken driving.
