Man Drinks Beer, Shows Off New Mustang, Then Crashes into Parked Car

Falls man got his 2012 Mustang up to 70 miles per hour before hitting a parked car on Elm Lane.

A Menomonee Falls man is facing charges after he allegedly drunk seven to 10 beers and then crashed his 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 into another car while trying to show it off to one of his friends.

According to the criminal complaint, Perry Palm, 35, was drinking with a friend at a cookout Sunday in the S8200 block of Elm Lane when they decided to go for a drive in his Mustang. Palm took the car up to 70 miles per hour, slid through a curb and hit a parked Jeep Grand Cherokee, causing the driver’s side door and several wheels and tires to come off the Mustang.

The passenger in the car had to be taken to after suffering a compound fracture in his right arm.

Palm is charged with one count of first offense operating while intoxicated and causing injury and one count of reckless driving and causing injury. If convicted, he faces up to two years in Waukesha County Jail and $2,000 in fines.

I don't see several missing wheels, but the driver's door is missing along with his brain!

Step up to the plate and donate Free Legal Services? How about Free Meetings to address the issue that caused the problem instead. Free Legal Services would just be enabling the issue to go on longer.

He can attend the meetings while serving time for his mistakes. Wonder if he had insurance...
