Police say they can't arrest drunk man who admitted driving into building

Seattle police say they can't arrest a man who admitted to driving drunk and crashing into an apartment building on Northeast Ravenna Boulevard at around 1 a.m. on Thursday morning.

Police say despite the man admitting to being behind the wheel, they can't arrest him because there are no witnesses to confirm his story.

“We were drinking, we started fighting, I decided to dip out. Driving drunk, smashed into the thing, because they were chasing me,” the man told a news crew.

“We all got drunk - everyone's drunk - you know, you can't blame anyone - there's no one to blame there, it's just, things happen."
