    Joe's Food Mart at 10641 Imperial Highway in Norwalk is boarded up Monday, after a woman drove her car through the window Sunday. The driver, 74, was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

    (Diandra Jay/Staff Photographer)NORWALK - A 74-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence Sunday after crashing her Cadillac through the front window of a liquor store, authorities said.

    Lynne Rice crashed her 1988 Cadillac into the front window of Joe's Food Mart, 10641 E. Imperial Highway, at 6:10 p.m., causing about $8,000 in damages, said Lt. Jenny Ha of the Norwalk Sheriff's Station.

    The crash apparently didn't slow her down.

    After plowing half-way through the store, Rice got out of the car, walked over to the cooler and pulled out a six pack of Budweiser, said the store owner, who gave his last name, Awada.

    "I don't know how she managed to walk," Awada said.

    Rice went up to the counter to make her purchase, but when the cashier refused to sell to her, she pushed him, Awada said.

    The cashier called 9-1-1 and police arrived minutes later.
    You have to admire her focus.

    Thought Arkansas was the only state that had drive thru liquor stores?

    They have them in Ohio as well. And I hear you can get mixed drinks in Louisiana.

    edit: Didn't realize who I was responding to.
