A Traverse City man was arraigned for narcotics possession and driving while under the influence of drugs after he crashed into a Cadillac business August 19.

Jerome Hansen was arraigned August 20 on the charges.

Police say Hansen was driving down Harris Street in Cadillac when he lost control of his SUV and crashed into Lakeside Title causing major damage to the business. He admitted to police that he had drugs in his vehicle. Police said he was on drugs at the time, after finding opiate-based narcotics in his car.

Hansen’s Yukon truck went through the waiting room and crashed into the reception desk where two employees were working. One employee received only minor injuries. No one else was in the building at the time, something the business owner called, “a miracle,” because a customer had just left the building.

The building was boarded up and closed after the accident, but was expected to be back to normal by the next day.
