When they arrived they discovered a Nissan Versa had driven through the front of the building and came out through a side wall.

The storefront once housed Bonnie's Boutique but was currently vacant.

A Georgia State Trooper conducted a field sobriety test and the driver, 21-year-old Ryan Cox, was charged with DUI, failure to maintain lane, and driving without a license..
