Police suspect DUI: Owner recounts car barreling into his Phoenix restaurant

The un-named driver’s black BMW at rest inside the heavily damaged restaurant. Driver was charged with DUI.

12/2 ~6:15pm near Thomas Road and 15th Avenue. Nice.

The car drove up the sidewalk and over the curb before colliding with a tree, plowing through a pillar holding up the restaurant’s patio roof and continuing on into the main dining area of the restaurant where eight people sat.

The man was later cited for driving while impaired, police said. His name was not released.

Why not?

12/2/2016 Is this a “Non-traffic” incident? We won’t know for sure until mid-2017, unless somebody gets the police report. That the incident began by running up on the sidewalk could go either way: if it was in a parking lot it may have been all private property(?)
