A Mercedes-Benz driven by a suspected drunken driver crashed into a home in La Canada Flintridge and the driver was in custody Saturday morning.

The crash occurred at 11:30 p.m. Friday in the 5000 block of Crown Way, near Knight Way, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The homeowner told a news photographer at the scene he was sleeping when he heard a commotion and thought someone had broken into his home. He came out of the bedroom to find a Mercedes-Benz and its driver in his living room.

The driver was later arrested for DUI.

Neither the homeowner or the driver was injured.

Los Angeles County Building and Safety teams were requested to determine if it was safe for the homeowner to remain in the house.
