47-year-old Austin Goddard backed an Army truck into the mailbox at Dee’s Country Cocktail Lounge in the early hours of Monday.  He drove off without providing his information, returned, started an argument with employees, and then pulled off again. Officers observed the large military green truck and conducted an investigative stop. Goddard was visibly intoxicated when they approached but stated he only had one beer, insisting he was not under the influence. He consented to sobriety tests, performed poorly, and was taken into custody for driving under the influence, vandalism, and leaving the scene of an accident.
