Car crashes into CNN Center in downtown Atlanta

Car Crash CNN Center

ATLANTA (AP) — A motorist is facing charges after police say he crashed a car into a lobby at CNN Center, the news network’s headquarters in downtown Atlanta.

Authorities say the Mercedes Benz shattered the glass entryway on the building’s north side around 4:15 a.m. Friday. It came to rest in the middle of the lobby, several yards away from any of CNN’s offices.

Atlanta police officer John Chafee says 22-year-old Gerlmy Javon Todd is facing charges of driving under the influence, reckless driving and marijuana possession.

Chafee said Todd told officers he had been driving all night and fell asleep at the wheel. There were no reports of injuries. It wasn’t immediately clear if Todd had a lawyer, and a phone number for him could not be found.
