WESTHAMPTON BEACH, N.Y. – Police arrested a 20-year-old party host on charges of serving alcohol to an underage guest who later crashed his airborne Jeep into the second floor of a New York home.

Hunter Wootten was arrested Monday on a charge of unlawfully dealing with a child.

Police say 20-year-old Adam Clark attended Wootten’s party before taking a speed bump so fast his Jeep vaulted into the air and into the house. No one was seriously hurt.

The vehicle ripped a hole in the side of the house and fell into a foyer, landing with its headlights pointing skyward.

Clark apologized for the wreck at his arraignment Saturday on drunken driving and other charges.
