Dog poop footprints lead police to drunken driving suspect

DURHAM (AP) -- A Durham man accused of drunkenly driving into a yard was found after police followed a smelly trail of dog feces footprints. Police said 18-year-old Josue Herrios-Coronilla drove his black Camaro on the wrong side of the road Wednesday and crashed into the yard of Bill McDonald, the owner of four dogs. When police arrived, they found crushed bushes, a damaged fence, an inoperable car - and a fresh shoe print in a pile of dog feces. Following an odoriferous trail down the street, Durham police Sergeant Dale Gunter noticed a white van driving toward him. When he asked the passenger to step out, he noticed alcohol on the man's breath and evidence all over his shoes. Herrios-Coronilla was charged with driving while impaired and drinking underage.
