GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- A man plowed his truck into a Gwinnett County Taco Bell restaurant four times on Sunday, reports the Gwinnett Daily Post.

The paper reports, "At about 12:30 a.m. Sunday, a Gwinnett County police officer was patrolling near the intersection of Pleasant Hill Road and Satellite Boulevard when he heard tires screeching and a woman yelling for help. He would soon discover that 19-year-old Armando Lupercio had driven his pickup truck off the road and into a tree before continuing through the parking lot and smashing into the glass facade of Taco Bell - and that he wasn't done yet.

"As the officer responded, he reportedly watched as Lupercio drove around the corner of the restaurant and crashed into the building for a second time. He then backed up and hit the building yet again."

The Gwinnett paper reports two women and the officer were standing in the drive-thru lane when the truck took off again. Not only did the car hit the building, it also hit one of the women's cars, the police report said.

Lupercio was charged with driving under the influence, possession of alcohol by a minor, hit and run, improper lane change, first-degree criminal damage to property and two counts of aggravated assault. The latter three counts are felonies.
