BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

Police say a drunk driver crashed into the window of Russell Sales causing costly damage.  

According to the incident report, it happened Wednesday around 11 p.m. when Blytheville police were responding to a fire in the 300-block of South Division Street.

As an officer was heading to the fire, a black Ford Mustang sped past him heading north.  

The officer turned around in a restaurant parking lot and tried to stop the car.  

The chase headed north on Division Street, then turned east onto West Main Street. It continued until the suspect went airborne on some train tracks.

The car slid sideways and landed back onto the road, facing south and still moving. It then jumped the curb and struck the front door glass of Russell Sales, breaking two windows and cracking another, causing approximately $3,000 to $4,000 worth of damage. 

While the officer was arresting the driver, Justin Bradley, he noticed the smell of alcohol and asked if Bradley had been drinking.

According to the report, Bradley admitted he had because it was his birthday.  

Bradley cut his hand during the pursuit so the officer contacted EMS.

EMS checked Bradley and bandaged his finger.  Bradley was then taken to the police department for a blood alcohol content test. The results showed he had a BAC of .08.

Bradley was charged with a DWI, driving on a suspended license, careless and prohibited driving, and driving left of center.
