A man was arrested by Lansdale Police Friday night on suspicion of DUI after crashing into the stage on Wood Street, erected as part of the 2014 inaugural First Friday festivities.

There were no injuries, tweeted Lansdale Reporter.

The stage is owned by Bill Sherman, who runs Party Bounce Rentals in Lansdale.

Sherman said the incident occurred around 8:30 p.m. 

Official criminal charges and an arraignment in district court have not yet been filed by police.

A little rain didn't keep people from enjoying the popular Discover Lansdale-sponsored monthly event in the borough, including eager, young firefighters and a motorcycle ministry.
