    I hate how the news never puts the cross street. Arcade and Case.

      what does it matter. 900 block should tell you enough.

  2. Victim Du Jour says:

    It’s a shame the neighborhood doesn’t respect a beautiful lingerie store.

    Lingerie is really nice.

  3. oldguy says:

    He was probably LOOKING AT where he was going.

  4. Jed Hoover says:

    Police Report states he was actually wearing Lingerie too

  5. Victim Du Jour says:

    I wonder if a guy had lingerie on under his clothing, if TSA at the airport can see it with those body scanners?

    guess he got his panties in a bunch

    Hard to believe that you can be so drunk and DRIVING that you can not avoid hitting a building! This guy should be sent to a military boot camp until he successfully completes it, pay for restitution on the building, have his license suspended until fills the following obligations; pay for his counseling, prepay a five year insurance premium with lots of coverage and 300 hours community service. That should wake up this loser.

    Wow Mike, you have it all planned out don’t you, that’s straight from the Communist Manifest. Why not just banish him to Siberia; Remember, you liberals are usually the ones on the wrong side of the law.

      Rusty Shackelturd-Communist Manifest? My prescription is right out the Republican playbook.
      I do empathize and understand how difficult personal responsibility is for you when it affects YOUR obvious addiction to the bottle and other irresponsible impulses, but drinking and driving affects everyone. This country should adapt the Swedish model for driving drunk and reduce the bood-alcohol level to .02% and suspend driving privileges forever. That would send a clear message and stop this type of reckless behavior.

      1. Riley says:

        Mike, A great answer. It would be great if ALL vehicles had a breath tester that woyld eject ANYONE that had alcohol in their system. The next step would be to tell those who are driving impaired due to “other substances”.

      “you liberals are usually the ones on the wrong side of the law.”
      Two points, Rusty.
      First, you once again presume that someone you don’t agree with is a liberal.
      Second, would you care to share your source on this belief, or is this the typical Rusty Shackleford “I spake and therefore it is true” Special? I’d love to see where you got this information, considering the fact that the police don’t collect information on political leanings at time of arrest, nor do the courts collect it at the time of convictions.
      That’s the sort of thing that an overbearing, overly-large government would collect, and, if neo-cons are correct, that would indicate that it would be a liberal program, and, if neo-cons are correct, that would mean that such a program would lean heavily in favor of liberals, because it would be inherently corrupt, and therefore, such a program, if neo-cons are correct, would show that conservatives were usually the ones on the wrong side of the law.
      Thankfully, there is no such program, and thankfully, the neo-cons aren’t right about any of that garbage.

    come on now the guy is a cross dresser just looking for something to ware for the night.

  10. bud says:

    the building has a voodoo about cars as this is the second time one has entered the front door.bud

  11. Richard in Minneapolis says:

    Maybe he thought it was a drive-thru…”Would you like fries with that?”

  12. Sherman says:

    He probably needed a change of underwear after this little event.

  13. Iconoclast says:

    Probably looking for one of those “Bras” for the front end of his car.

  14. John P says:

    DUOH! Of all the darn shops! …could of hit anything else!..but he had to hit..a

  15. Frank says:

    Was it a skanky shop? or a fancy one? Ah, I am sure that our lawmakers have made a different law and penalty for both.

    One you get a prison term, the other a slap on the wrist.

    Minnesota, land of 100,000 firecracker laws.

    If you get a TSA pat down at the airport and like it, is it ok to tip?

    hey Chaka, you are a moron. Go home to your spot under the overpass.
