A man is facing a Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants charge after a crash into a convenience store.

On Sunday, December 8, 2019 at 6:46p.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of a car into a building in the 7800 Block of Northeast Glisan Street. When they arrived they found a 1993 Ford Explorer that had crashed through the front of a convenience store, proceeded through the store, and struck the back wall (photo).

The officers determined that no one was injured. After talking to the driver, they determined that alcohol was likely a factor in the crash. They conducted an investigation and ultimately arrested Robert N. Bullock, 71, of Portland. He was issued a citation in lieu of custody for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants and Reckless Driving.
