A Plymouth man was arrested Thursday night on drunken driving charges after crashing into a house in Falmouth, officials said.

No one was injured, but a resident was displaced after 57-year-old David Marathas drove his pickup truck into the front of the single-family home at 261 Jones Road, Falmouth police said.

Officers at the scene reported the man believed he was “either in Carver or Wareham,” Falmouth police said in a Facebook post.


Marathas also hit a traffic light before driving up on the lawn and into the house, police said in the post.
