A drunk driver veered into a Bay Ridge storefront early Saturday morning.

A drunk driver was arrested in the early morning hours of Saturday, June 2 after a minor accident quickly escalated, ending with one of the cars crashing into the storefront of a Bay Ridge business.

According to a police source, at around 2:22 a.m. a “fender bender” occurred at the corner of 86th Street and Fifth Avenue, after which those in both cars exited their vehicles and spilled out onto the street.

Following the incident – which another police source said was a rear ending – a passenger in one of the vehicles got behind the wheel in an attempt to take off, at which point he made a U-turn and lost control of the car, crashing into the American Greetings store at 8511 Fifth Avenue.

Authorities say the driver, 24-year-old Dontae Christiani, refused to take a breathalyzer at the scene. He was arrested and charged with driving drunk, reckless endangerment and “aggravated unlicensed operation” of a motor vehicle.
