A driver crashed an SUV into a column outside a West Side auto parts store Wednesday morning and then gave San Antonio police two different stories about how it happened.
The accident occurred just after 3 a.m. at the O'Reilly Auto Parts store in the 3000 block of Nogalitos.
Police said officers questioned the driver, a man in his 20s, and he initially told them he was robbed and began to chase the suspect, but lost control of the SUV.
The driver then told police he and his friend tried to pull into the parking lot, and lost control of the SUV.
The driver was taken into custody because of a previous warrant, but police said he will face multiple charges including DWI.
Crews removed the SUV without any problems. Damage was limited to the building's column.
