A man who blamed a deer for his crash into a home in Manchester, New York "failed a series of sobriety tests," police say.

New York State Police out of Canandaigua were called to a house located at 2834 State Route 96 on Monday, November 29, 2021 at approximately 7:34pm after receiving a call that a vehicle had crashed into a house.

The vehicle, a white Ford 250, was allegedly being driven by Christopher Livermore.  Troopers say he told them that he swerved while driving to avoid a deer in his path.

According to a release from New York State Police, Livermore "had been drinking...Livermore submitted to a breath test which resulted in a BAC of .19%."

He was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated and issued traffic tickets for a court date later this month.

It is not known if anyone was in the house at the time of the crash but no injuries were reported at the scene.
