WATCH: Driver arrested after ramming into East Moline Checkers

EAST MOLINE — A driver was arrested and charged with a DUI after causing damage at the Checkers at 565 Avenue of the Cities in East Moline Thursday night.

Witness Bren Lawrenz, who recorded the video above, tells the Bettendorf Growl that the driver backed up into a guard post in the drive-thru before driving into a light post, knocking it over.

East Moline Police say the restaurant had to close and disconnect power due to the driver’s ramming into the building and awning.

The restaurant was open by 8:30 p.m. No injuries were reported.
