BRUNSWICK — Bowdoin College’s science building was damaged after a sport utility vehicle operated by the college’s assistant women’s ice hockey coach crashed into it Sunday night.

Brunswick Police Chief Richard Rizzo said his officers arrested 24-year-old Holly Lorms on drunk-driving charges following the crash, which was reported at 10:41 p.m. Lorms made bail following her arrest.
Bowdoin College spokesman Scott Hood said he is unable to comment on whether Lorms would be disciplined because the school does not comment on personnel matters.
A message left on Lorms' home phone was not returned.
Rizzo said Lorms was driving a 2009 Lexus sport utility vehicle when it hit a utility pole on Sills Drive. Her vehicle went off the road and traveled a short distance before slamming into a brick wall of the Stanley F. Druckenmiller science building.
Lorms was alone at the time and no one else was injured, but Rizzo said the investigating officer, Matthew Swan, said the science building sustained “quite a bit of damage.” Lorms' SUV was totaled, according to Rizzo.
The college's website said that Lorms, a 2011 graduate of Boston University, was hired as the women’s assistant hockey coach last summer.
