MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) - A former sheriff's deputy faces multiple charges after allegedly leading police on a chase and crashing into an old school building while drunk.

Kevin Jay Haan crashed his vehicle into a former Orchard View School building near Apple Avenue and Dangl Road Monday afternoon.

Haan, 47, now faces charges of third-degree fleeing and eluding, operating while intoxicated (third offense) and resisting and obstructing, according to the Muskegon County Prosecutor's Office.

Authorities say a half-empty bottle of vodka was found in the crashed truck. The resisting police charge was because of his actions after the crash.

A woman whose vehicle Haan allegedly hit during the chase told 24 Hour News 8 Tuesday evening that she's "disappointed" a former law enforcement officer would behave recklessly and try to run from police.

His previous drunk driving convictions were in 2008 and 2010, according to the Prosecutor's Office.

In 2008, Haan resigned from the Allegan County Sheriff's Department after 18 years on the force. He had been arrested three times in March of that year for threatening his wife over the phone, violating bond, and drunk driving.

He pleaded guilty in May 2008 to misdemeanor malicious use of a telecommunications device and operating while impaired, according to state records.

He also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence after a May 2008 incident.

Haan was arrested again in October 2008 in Kent County for operating while intoxicated, to which he also pleaded guilty.
