An Oklahoma man was arrested after crashing into a guardrail on U.S. 81/287 in Rhome Wednesday evening.

Jeffery Grannon, 41, of Yukon, Okla. was charged with driving while intoxicated after being uninjured in the crash. He was also charged with falsification of drug test, stemming from a device found in his vehicle at the time of the crash, according to Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Richard Hunter.

Both charges are Class B misdemeanors. Grannon was released from Wise County Jail Thursday after posting bonds totaling $3,000.

Shortly before 6:30 p.m. Wednesday a DPS Trooper saw Grannon’s Chevrolet pickup on the shoulder of U.S. 81/287. The vehicle had been described as driving recklessly and striking another vehicle.

Hunter said when the Trooper approached the truck, it took off. The truck exited the highway onto a county road and then returned to U.S. 81/287 and headed northbound.

“The Chevrolet was having difficulty maintaining a single lane of travel and lost control, traveling into the center median, striking a guardrail and coming to a stop,” Hunter said.

Grannon was taken to Wise County Jail.
