A woman was arrested early in the morning on June 7 after she crashed her car into two vehicles and part of a building outside of the Antioch bar in Nashville.
According to WTVF-TV, Shaquata Harris allegedly got into a fight inside the F-5 Bar, which is in a shopping center off Murfreesboro Road. Police told the station that Harris left the bar and got into her Ford Mustang. She then slammed into a pillar, hit a Chevy Tahoe and then hit another Mustang. At that point, police said Harris took off, according to WTVF.
Police said that nobody was seriously injured in the accidents. Harris has been charged with DUI, property damage, and leaving the scene of an accident.

The CDC also reported that in 2010, over 1.4 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.
