Richard Kyle Gay of Yorkville allegedly drove his car off the road near Caton Farm and Schlapp roads near Na-Au-Say in Kendall County before 6 a.m. Saturday morning, Rather than put the car in reverse or, better, stop the car, Gay drove it deeper into the cornfield, making unwanted crop rings for the field's owner. Both the field and Gay's car were damaged in the incident, natch.
