Man arrested for DWI, smashing cars and leaving scene while parking in Old Town

A Fairfax County man was arrested and released multiple traffic offenses in Old Town on Oct. 10, including driving while intoxicated, driving under a revoked/suspended license and two counts of failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

The 59-year-old suspect allegedly hit three vehicles and drove off while attempting to park in front of The Light Horse Restaurant at 715 King Street, according to a search warrant affidavit.

Restaurant staff told the suspect that he could not park there, and he then returned to The Light Horse after parking elsewhere.

“I was just standing here across the street watching this guy smashing cars trying to park and then drive away,” a witness told ALXnow.

“I arrived on scene at the Light Horse… and was advised that the subject had walked into the bar,” police said in the affidavit, adding that the suspect did not remember where he parked his car.

This is the suspect’s third DWI and he goes to court on November 11.
