A Lincoln man was 10 feet away from being hit inside his house by a car Monday. Officer Katie Flood says Israel Mendoza was arguing with his girlfriend at around 9:30 Monday night. Flood says Mendoza's girlfriend left in her car and Mendoza followed.

Police say Mendoza tried to turn on Plum street and lost control of his car… That's when he struck Elmer Morehead's home on south 13th street. Morehead was in his living room when the car hit his home 10 feet from where he was sitting. 

$20,000 dollars in damage was done to Morehead's home. Mendoza was taken to detox where he was found to have a blood alcohol content of .140. He was arrested for DWI and willful reckless driving.
