Suspected Drunk Driver Arrested Following Wreck

A suspected drunk driver is behind bars following an accident in west Lubbock.

Witnesses say the man appeared to be drunk when he stopped at the Town and Country at 19th and Milwaukee around 12:30 a.m. Friday. He paid for his gas, but the store clerk followed him outside to get his license plate to report him to police.

Witnesses say the man became angry, went back into the store and demanded his money back. He left and drove east on 19th. That is when he apparently lost control and crashed his SUV in the parking lot of the Canyon Crossing apartments at 2101 W. Loop 289.

The vehicle landed upside down in a parking space. The man crawled out of the SUV and was arrested by police on suspicion of drunk driving.
