Alleged DUI driver rolls into doors of Midtown food mart, police say

A driver suspected of being under the influence was arrested Monday morning after he rolled into the front doors of a Midtown gas station, officials said.

An employee of the Chevron station at the corner of Spring and 10th streets saw the man asleep at the wheel while parked at the gas pumps, according to Atlanta police. When the employee went to wake him up about 6 a.m., the driver’s foot came off the brake and the car began to move.

Chopper footage from Channel 2 Action News showed his car partially inside the station’s food mart and shattered glass on the ground. 


“The driver demonstrated behavior suggesting he was under the influence,” police Investigator James White told AJC.com. “He was arrested and charged.”

He was identified as 27-year-old Jarvis Williams. 

No one was injured in the incident, and White said there was no structural damage to the business.

Williams is facing charges of reckless driving and DUI. He was expected to be booked into the Fulton County Jail.
