      The Macon Police Department has reported a motor vehicle accident on Macon Lake Road that landed the vehicle in Macon Lake. The accident occurred at 5:15 p.m. on Tuesday.

      The driver, a 40-year-old Macon man, was arrested for careless and imprudent driving, driving while intoxicated and driving while license revoked.
