IRON MOUNTAIN — A Sobieski, Wis., man faces a drug charge after driving an SUV into the east wall of the Norway-Vulcan-Loretto Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 458 on Sunday evening.
Casey Steinhagen, 22, is charged with possession of a controlled substance analogue, a felony punishable by up to two years in prison; and operating while under the influence and reckless driving, both 93-day misdemeanors.
A probable cause hearing is set for Friday. Bond is set at $10,000 cash, surety or 10%.
Steinhagen was arrested after the crash, which happened about 4:58 p.m. Sunday, according to the Norway Police Department.
Reports were a Jeep Grand Cherokee came off U.S. 2 and plowed into the building at 724 Seventh Ave. at Section Street.
A 23-year-old female passenger was transported to the Dickinson County Memorial Hospital for unknown injuries.
