[March 13, 2009]  DOLORES, Colo. (AP) -- A driver accused of spinning doughnuts on a Colorado high school football field and crashing into the empty bleachers drew a penalty flag from police. Nicholas Lee Himmel, 21, was arrested on suspicion of criminal mischief, careless driving and driving under the influence.

HardwarePolice said he drove a pickup on to the Dolores High School football field, spun circles and then crashed into the visitors' bleachers at about 10 p.m. Saturday.

No injuries were reported but Dolores Public Schools business manager Karen Andrews estimates the damage at $18,000.

No phone number could be found for Himmel, and a Montezuma County jail officer didn't immediately return a call.
