MARSHALL (WTVB) - It was a different kind of car wash for sure and in this case, a dog wash to boot, all part of trying to beat the heat. Calhoun County Sheriff's Deputies were called around 7 pm Tuesday after two guys fishing at Maynard Lake in Eckford Township said they saw a pickup truck drive into the lake. When deputies arrived on scene, the 1988 Chevy Silverado was stuck in the lake, with water up to the door handles. Deputies were told by the driver that he drove into the lake because his dogs were hot and he was going to cool them off, and that his truck needed a wash. The 49 year old man from Marshall Township was arrested for Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated and lodged at the Calhoun County Jail. The pickup was later removed from the lake. No word on how the dog cleaning went.
