BELOIT, Wis. (AP) — Police say a Wisconsin man was arrested after crashing a pickup truck into the roof of a Beloit home.

A news release from Beloit police says the 37-year-old man, of Beloit, was driving at a high rate of speed Saturday afternoon when his vehicle left the roadway, entered a water-retaining ditch and went airborne. The homeowner said he was watching a University of Wisconsin football game when the truck came crashing through the roof about 12 feet from him.

The Wisconsin State Journal quotes police as saying the driver, 37-year-old Pieter E. Bruner, was under the influence.
