ANNISTON, MO (KFVS) -

An Anniston, Missouri man is facing a felony property damage charge following a vehicle crash.

Billy Griggs was charged with felony property damage 1st degree, and felony leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident.

The investigation began on June 22, when a deputy went to Anniston City Park to investigate a vehicle crash, according to Mississippi County Sheriff Keith Moore.

The deputy learned someone had driven a truck into the park and hit children’s playground equipment. The driver then backed the truck up and left the scene.

During the course of his investigation, Deputy Marc Tragesser found a license plate lying on the ground beneath the damaged playground equipment.

After a records check, it was revealed the license was assigned to a truck owned by Billy Griggs, of Anniston.

When Deputy Tragesser went to Griggs’ home, he noticed a truck with the front license plate missing. There were also several empty beer cans in the back of that truck.

Deputy Tragesser met with Griggs who said that the vehicle belonged to him and it is never driven by anyone else.

According to the deputy’s report, Griggs’ breath smelled of alcohol, and he appeared to be intoxicated.

Griggs denied crashing into the playground equipment, but was adamant that nobody else had driven his truck.

Griggs was taken to the Mississippi County Detention Center with bond set at $10,000.
