Shortly thereafter the police found the car at a nearby one-way street, parked in the opposing direction. It was damaged after the incident. Mbl.is reports this today.
The police officers were quick to find the offender, a thirty-year-old man, at a nearby bar where he had decided to carry on drinking. Upon arresting him they discovered that not only was he inebriated; he had also been using illegal drugs.
The offender was placed in custody, and was questioned once he had sobered up.
No one was hurt in the car collision.
