CORINTH — A Corinth man faces numerous charges after he repeatedly drove into a home on Main Street while drunk late Monday, then fought with responding police officers, authorities said.

Police were called to 250 Main St. around 11:30 p.m. for a report of a fight and arrived to find that one of the combatants had repeatedly driven into the building several times, knowing that people were inside, the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.

No injuries were reported, but the building was damaged.

Police determined Nicholas L. Carleton, 36, of 250 Main St., was to blame for the damage and that he had driven drunk, authorities said.

He was charged with three felony counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor driving while intoxicated and endangering the welfare of a child and issued numerous traffic tickets, the Sheriff's Office said.

Carleton was arraigned in Corinth Town Court and sent to Saratoga County Jail for lack of bail.
