A Casper man has been arrested after wrecking his wife's car.

Christopher Turner is facing one charge of driving under the influence after police say he drove his wife's car and damaged it.

Back on Saturday morning December 31st, officers received a call from Turner's wife, who said that the side of her vehicle had been badly scraped and appeared to have been involved in an accident.

She said earlier that morning she saw her husband return home with the vehicle, and he appeared very intoxicated before he passed out a short time later.

When police arrived, officers saw the damage and once they got Turner to wake up, he admitted to hitting a car while driving after drinking at his shop, earlier in the night.

Turner failed several sobriety tests and registered a point-zero-nine blood alcohol content, on a breathalyzer test.

Police have been unable to locate the vehicle that Turner said he had hit.
