A man accused of causing a power outage after colliding with power poles at Lakebottom Park on Tuesday has made bond, jail records show.

Cecil James Rhodes, 27, was charged with three counts of striking a fixed object and one count each of DUI, too fast for conditions and failure to maintain lane, police said.

According to police, Rhodes was driving a 2008 Toyota Scion about 5 a.m. Tuesday when he struck three power poles at Cherokee Avenue and 17th Street. A witness told officers he saw Rhodes’ vehicle speeding just before the crash.

Officers said Rhodes had bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol. He was arrested at the scene and made his bond that day, records state.
