NEW CARLISLE, Ohio (WDTN) - A New Carlisle man facing foreclosure, is also facing criminal charges.
Clark County officials said that Steve Doak tried to tear down his Firwood Drive home after he learned the bank was foreclosing on the property.
"As far as I'm concerned I am not done yet," Doak said on Wednesday. "Not until it's laying completely on the ground."
Deputies were called to Doak's home on Tuesday after neighbors reported that he was driving an SUV through his yard, crashing into fences and walls.
Officials described the scene as extremely dangerous.
They said there were neighbors outside and also Doak could have hit gas or electric lines, potentially causing an explosion.
Doak is now charged with a handful of criminal charges including, inducing panic, disorderly conduct, driving under suspension and reckless operation.
"His actions last night were completely out of control and unwarranted," said Sheriff Gene Kelly. "This was conduct that was not called for."
Sheriff Kelly said he will have extra patrols around Doak's home, making sure he does not do any additional damage.
The investigation is ongoing and officials said more charges could be filed in the future.
