CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – Police said a woman drove her car into a Taco Bell early Sunday morning after leaving a bar.

When officers arrived on the scene, Nicole M. Peterson was sitting on the curb of the parking lot at 900 University Drive.

Peterson told police she had been at a friend's going-away party at a sports bar, where she was drinking. When she left the bar, she wanted Taco Bell before she went home.

Coral Springs police said Peterson pulled into a parking spot and then put her vehicle in reverse, crashing into the restaurant.

Police said Peterson was swaying, slurring her words and smelled of alcohol.

Peterson was given a field sobriety test and was arrested shortly after.
