CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A Chesterfield café will be closed for a few days after a car crashed into it Monday night.

Police said the driver, 74-year-old Jack Suggs, was parked in the parking lot of Russell’s Café & Bakery, located on Clayton Road when he accelerated his car in reverse. 

Suggs was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

The company posted on their Facebook page that they would be closed for a few days “due to a major accident.”  

Tuesday morning, the Chesterfield Police Department posted photos of the crash on their Twitter with the caption: "Once again, DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE. You may end up 'allegedly' backing in to a local Cafe and Bakery."
