The Rusk County airport director was fired after county officials learned he crashed his pickup into a home, netting him a DWI arrest — his second in as many weeks.

Police say David Dumas, 49, of Henderson was booked into the Rusk County Jail Thursday afternoon after he pulled out of a business in the 500 block of West Main Street and apparently hit the accelerator instead of the brake.

“We got a call about somebody running a car into a house. It was characterized as being embedded into the house,” said Lt. Craig Sweeney of the Henderson Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division.
