A man was arrested and charged after deliberately driving his mobile home into a tavern, according to police reports in Oregon.

Boring Police said that a man drove his mobile home into the Timber Pub & Grub tavern, early on Saturday, as the establishment was closing for the night.

Only a small number of people were still around at the time of the incident and no one was injured, the sheriff’s office said. Police found the driver walking around some time later.

The driver has been identified as Larry Dale Karasch of Clackamas County.

“The driver did not appear to be injured after the incident, but had several self-inflicted wounds on his arms,” according to a police press release. “The driver was charged and transported to an area hospital, where his wounds were treated. He will also undergo a mental health evaluation,” police said.

It was not immediately clear how much damage the tavern, which is located at 28052 SE Highway 212, sustained in the incident.
