Lincoln police say a man arrested Sunday morning for driving under the influence will likely face a felony vandalism charge after he broke a $6,000 Breathalyzer machine.

Twenty-eight-year-old Jason Hansen was arrested around 3:45 a.m. for driving under the influence. Lincoln Police Assistant Chief Brian Jackson says Hansen was taken to the Cornhusker Place detoxification center for a formal blood-alcohol test. Jackson says after the test was complete, Hansen ripped up his ticket and pushed a table, which caused the $6,000 Breathalyzer machine to fall to the floor.

Hansen was taken to the Lancaster County Jail.
