PELHAM — A local man whose age wasn’t provided by police is free on personal recognizance bail with a December court date following his arrest early Sunday morning on charges that include driving under the influence, police said.

Matthew Poff, believed to be a Pelham resident, was also charged with two counts of criminal mischief following the single-vehicle crash, which occurred about 2:30 a.m. on Lannan Road.

Poff is due in Salem district court on Dec. 5 for arraignment on the charges, police said.

Police, fire and medical crews responded to reports of a crash on Lannan Road, and upon arrival located the 2013 Subaru Impreza on the front lawn of 50 Lannan Road, with extensive front-end damage.

Police determined the vehicle left the road and traveled about 150 feet before striking a granite post, which broke into two pieces upon impact.
