COMANCHE COUNTY, OK (KSWO) - New developments from the accident Friday night where a man drove his jeep into Lake Lawtonka, and walked away. It happened on East Lake Road, between the dam and Schoolhouse Slough. Officers found the man shortly after by Lake Lawtonka's dam.
The man was Dalon Pointer. He was arrested for driving under the influence, reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident. Police say it appeared Pointer was going too fast, failed to make the turn, went through a tree, and then tumbled into the shallow water.
You may remember Pointer from the story last July. He was charged with walking away from an accident, leaving the passenger in the car with multiple injuries. In March, he pleaded guilty to the charges related to that crash, and has been out of jail.
