LEE CO., GA (WALB) - A man is in custody after a car crashed through a Lee County storefront overnight.
Deputies were called to a report of a car in a ditch around 1:30 Tuesday morning in the 1400 block of US 19.
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..
It's not clear what caused the man to drive through the building or how much damage it caused.
