'Get some help': Car owner has message for drunk driver



"I said, 'where the heck is my car?'" Habers told ABC11. "So I went outside and my car was on the neighbor's lawn."

Habers said he was lucky to get home early Tuesday. Otherwise, he may have been at the car getting his children out as the crash happened.



"If it had happened tonight, you know, right at 7:15 I usually get home with my 3 girls," he said. "I pick up my oldest from Girl Scouts at 7:15. I'm unloading them from the car in that same exact spot."

He said his car was totaled but he knows insurance will cover that and he's just glad no one was injured.



Still, he wants to the driver, who police said was impaired, to be punished.

"I want him to face justice. Definitely license taken away," Habers said. "He could have killed someone easily."
