Mayor Dyer said his son immediately notified the homeowner, handed over his contact information and later left the scene.
“Teenage driving, I guess… It’s every parent’s nightmare,” Dyer said Tuesday morning at a brief news conference during which he said his son did everything right following the incident.
Police Chief Paul Rooney responded to the scene after spending the evening patrolling and monitoring radio traffic as downtown crowds poured out of the clubs, Ogburn said.
Mayor Dyer said Rooney’s presence was not special treatment for his son.
Ogburn said Rooney periodically responds to calls to help back up officers.
Dyer has retained attorney Tad Yates to deal directly with police because he thought it would be more appropriate than contacting police himself.
The crash is still under investigation and no charges have been filed. The report was not available Tuesday, Ogburn said.
