A 33-year-old Bayport man, who was arrested early Saturday morning for driving under the influence, lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a Sayville home, Suffolk County police said.

Police said Cory Schaetzle was driving a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu south on Broadway Avenue at 3:14 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle, struck a pole and then continued onto the yard of a Broadway Avenue home, “grazing” the front corner of the house.

The residents—who were not injured—dialed 911, police said.

Schaetzle was treated for minor injuries at Soutside Hospital in Bay Shore, police said.

He will be arraigned Sunday on a charge of driving under the influence.
