SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Police say a 31-year-old Sioux Falls man drove his S-U-V through the front window of a South Terry Avenue apartment early this morning, narrowly missing an elderly woman in her bedroom.
Officer Sam Clemens says Shawn Essem is charged with hit and run and reckless driving. Clemens says Essem was able to back out of the wreckage and drive to his home. Witnesses were able to get a licence plate number and describe the vehicle to police.
Clemens says Essem refused to come out of his home when police arrived and was eventually arrested almost seven hours after the incident.
