A judge in central Illinois has ordered a Mattoon man to pay more than $19,000 for the damage he caused while driving drunk in a corn field.

40-year-old Tony Osborn pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in the October 2011 incident.

In addition to the restitution, Judge James Glenn also sentenced Osborn to two years of court supervision and ordered him to pay a $500 fine and not use alcohol.

Police discovered the corn field damage after getting a report of a vehicle in a field just north of Mattoon.
