AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - A car ran into the front entrance of the Twin Peaks restaurant, the latest problem for a business that’s had a vehicle rammed into it before and has even been set on fire.

The latest incident happened around 9:50 p.m. Wednesday evening at the business that’s located at 277 Robert C. Daniel Jr. Parkway.

Video from a News 12 viewer shows the front door was shattered.

According to deputies, the driver struck two parked cars, struck the building and left the scene. He was later found at the Salvation Army parking lot on Wrightsboro Road, according to authorities.

Deputies say the driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and other offenses.

No injuries were reported.

Previous problems at the restaurant

It’s not the first time a vehicle has been driven into the restaurant.

Roland Croyle was found guilty last September of driving his truck into Twin Peaks and setting it on fire back in 2017.

Croyle also doused the building in diesel fuel in June 2017 before setting it on fire during business hours.

He was sentenced to 140 years in prison plus 20 years of probation.

He was recently denied a new trial.
