Man Runs From Police, Crashes Into Chipotle

State College almost had a tragedy on its hands Saturday night as a man attempting to evade police crashed into Chipotle on Heister Street.

According to police documents and as first reported by the Centre Daily Times, Manuel Barrantes turned the wrong way onto Beaver Ave. and tried to escape police by turning down Heister Street, making a left on Calder Way, and ultimately crashing into the back of Chipotle. The Florida man was charged with fleeing or attempting to elude an officer and DUI, among other summary offenses.

Although the car was totaled, the indelible Chipotle came out unscathed.

Barrantes remains in prison on a $10,000 bail.
