HART — The 21-year-old Shelby man who crashed through a brick wall and smashed into four cars at the Meyers Chevrolet car dealership in New Era last November now faces a felony of third-offense operating while intoxicated following a vehicle crash last weekend.

Isidoro Flores-Gomez, Jr., of 263 W. Sixth St., was arrested by the Hart post of the Michigan State Police following the crash, Aug. 20, at 1:17 a.m. at Oneida Trail near Tonawanda Trail in Grant Township. No one was injured in the crash, police said.

Third-offense OWI carries a maximum seven-year prison sentence.

Flores-Gomez was found guilty last February in 78th District Court of operating with a high blood alcohol content (BAC) and driving while license suspended (DWLS) stemming from the November crash. He was sentenced to 15 days in jail, serving five weekends; $3,301 in restitution; $1,665 in fines and costs; one year probation; and outpatient treatment.

The Toyota Scion he was driving crashed through a brick wall at the used car lot at Meyers Chevrolet and then collided with four vehicles.

Damage to the dealership, which is insured, was estimated at $100,000. Flores-Gomez was hospitalized for a broken femur, and no one else was injured in the crash.

Flores-Gomez is scheduled to appear for a preliminary conference Monday, Aug. 29, at 3 p.m. for his new criminal case. His bail was set at $25,000/cash/surety.
