Dreamgirls Boutique in Ocean Beach after a car drove into the front windows.

OCEAN BEACH , Calif. — A suspected drunk driver drove his car into an Ocean Beach clothing store at bar closing time Sunday.

Police said the man had been turned down trying to buy alcohol at Newport Pizza, and moments later crashed his car into the display window at Dreamgirls Boutique, 5054 Newport Avenue around 2 a.m. No one was injured.

The crash shattered the window, destroyed the new merchandise on display, and altered the side wall shared with a tattoo parlor, store manager Carla Vega said. Despite the damage, Vega opened the doors for business Sunday.

“We’re just happy no one got hurt and trying to be positive about it,” she said.

The driver was arrested by San Diego police.

The estimated cost of the damage was not released.
