Police say Jacob Syverson got into an argument at a wedding reception in Ottertail. He left the reception but was unable to find a ride home to Detroit Lakes, so he stole a 2006 Dodge Ram pickup that was hauling a camper, according to a news release from the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office.

Syverson drove the stolen pickup to Fergus Falls, where he crashed into a fire hydrant, the release said. He fled the scene, and broke the window of another pickup, but was unable to locate that vehicle’s keys.

Syverson eventually knocked on a resident’s door asking for help. He was arrested and is being held in the Otter Tail County Jail for driving while intoxicated, motor vehicle theft and other charges, the release said.
