GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Police believe a drunk driver is responsible for extensive damage to a southeast Grand Rapids park.

It happened around 1:45 a.m. Wednesday in Joe Taylor Park on Baxter Street, near Fuller Avenue and Wealthy Street SE.

Investigators say the driver ran into a picnic pavilion and several benches in the park.

Officers say the pavilion will be blocked off until city workers can assess the damage and make repairs. They would not allow WZZM 13 news staff near the pavilion for safety reasons.
