A woman was arrested Thursday after driving into a pizza restaurant in Oklahoma City.
According to officials with the Oklahoma City Police Department, 63 year-old Michelle Fletcher was arrested for driving under the influence after she crashed her SUV into the front wall and windows of a Domino’s Pizza on MacArthur Boulevard Thursday night. Sgt. Paul Gaylon said it appeared the brakes of the SUV were never applied after the SUV turned into the Dominos’ parking lot.
The restaurant was closed when the accident occurred but there were people in the dog grooming school next door.
“We have a mess here,” Domino’s owner Linda Burgat said. Police say a heavy oven behind the counter stopped the SUV, but the oven and other equipment were badly damaged in the crash.
“It could have been a really, really unfortunate situation,” Gaylon said.
