(Dover, Ohio) An apparent drunk driving arrest leads police to a man in the U.S. illegally.

Dover Police officer Ryan Porter said they were called to an accident on Cross Street just after midnight Sunday morning.

20-year-old Jose Hernandez Hernandez is accused of striking a parked vehicle and then trying to flee the scene.

Porter said the suspect got stuck in the snow and was unable to drive off, so he tried to make it to his home next door on foot.

He was arrested on OVI and underage consumption charges.

Porter said later they learned he had an administrative warrant for removal of the United States by Immigration and Customs.

Hernandez Hernandez is expected to face charges from the crash before federal authorities will take over.
