Early Wednesday morning at 2:19 a.m., officers reported to the 8100 block of Ideal Avenue after an SUV driven by 37-year-old Michael Aaby apparently crashed through the garage, continued through the family room and out the back of the house through a sliding glass door. Aaby then crashed through the fence, drove back into the garage, and fled the scene. He was located under a vehicle in the 8300 block of 81st Lane.

Aaby was arrested, and officers later determined he had been involved in a domestic incident with his wife before driving through the house.

A condemnation notice was placed at the home by the city's chief building official, due to structural damage.
