Police: Half-naked driver crashes car into Ohio store to get beer
ROCKY RIVER - Police in suburban Cleveland say a half-naked man intentionally crashed his car into a closed convenience store to get beer, injuring himself and a store employee.
Rocky River police say the 45-year-old driver was wearing nothing from the waist down when he crashed through a store wall early Sunday and told the worker he needed beer.
Police say the man barricaded himself in a beer cooler and told police to shoot him, but they subdued him with a stun device.
The driver was taken to a hospital, as was the store employee, who suffered leg and chest injuries that weren't considered critical.
The driver has been charged with impaired driving.
Police say the worker was fortunate that a deli counter was between him and the car, preventing more serious injuries.
