Erbaugh said that on Monday night at 11:20, police received a call about an alarm going off at Jason’s Deli. When they arrived, they saw that a car had driven through the entry of the store, taking out the front glass. The car then turned left and only stopped when it hit the wall shared by Jason’s and Marble Slab Ice Cream. He said that the driver, Clark, was arrested for DWI. He was booked into the Smith County Jail with a $3500 surety bond. He was released Tuesday.

Erbaugh said no one was in the stores when the car drove through.

Jason’s Deli posted on their social media pages that they are closed until further notice; they told our reporter at the scene that they will try to reopen on Wednesday.
