A Howard City man was arrested for causing $13,000 in damage, with his car, at the Pierson Township Cemetery.

According to the Montcalm Sheriff’s Office, a witness reported seeing a vehicle leave the road and enter into the cemetery on July 19, at approximately 3:40 p.m. The witness also saw that the driver did not stop but left the scene. The witness was able to tell the deputy where the vehicle went after the crash, as well as what the vehicle registration was.

The suspect, Patrick Wayne Oliver, 28, of Howard City, was eventually located and interviewed. The report was forwarded to the prosecutor’s office, which led to the issuance of the arrest warrant.

Oliver was charged with operating a motor vehicle without insurance, driving while having a suspended license, reckless driving, and failure to report an accident. He was arrested on August 19 and is currently out on a $1,500.00 bond.

The cemetery sustained over $13,000.00 in damages, which included damage to several headstones and monuments.

Oliver is scheduled for a district court arraignment on August 28 in connection with these charges.
