A driver is charged with DWI after crashing his car through a fence and into a backyard swimming pool in Arlington last night.

About 6 p.m. the owners of a home on Karen Court near Center and Mayfield were shocked to hear the crash and looked into their back yard, only to see a red car in their pool.

The driver managed to scramble out but when police arrived they quickly determined he'd been drinking.

Despite all the mess, no one was hurt. 

Yes this actually just happened. An impaired driver lost control in the 3500 block of S. Center Street and crashed through a backyard and into a swimming pool. No one was injured! Suspect arrested for DWI. #DontDrinkAndDrive pic.twitter.com/QwuKNJETDw
