PASADENA — A Pasadena man is accused of drunken driving after backing out of a gas station and crashing through the front window of a department store late Saturday, authorities said.
William Garrett, 50, of Pasadena was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence, Pasadena police Lt. Diego Torres said.
He was backing out of a Mobile gas station at Lake Avenue and San Pasqual Street about 8:30 p.m. when he struck and shattered the window of a Ross department store across the street, the lieutenant said.
“He backed all the way across (San Pasqual Street) street into Ross,” Torres said.
Officers who responded to the crash determined Garrett was drunk and arrested him on suspicion of DUI, police said.
According to county booking records, Garrett was released from jail Sunday morning on $30,000 bail pending his initial court appearance.
