DUNEDIN — A 41-year-old man who crashed into a barber shop Tuesday evening has been charged with drunken driving, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
Carey James Hickman, 41, was speeding down Beltrees Street toward Patricia Avenue about 5:45 p.m. Tuesday, when he barrelled into the parking lot of Dunedin Lanes, sped across Cedarwood Street and then collided with the south side of the barber shop building, 463 Patricia Avenue, deputies said.
No one was inside the barber shop at the time of the crash, though the owner was standing outside the building, officials said.
Hickman's pickup truck left a hole in the concrete wall of the building. He declined medical treatment at the scene.
Hickman was charged with DUI and transported to Pinellas County Jail. He was released early Thursday on a $500 bond.
According to jail records, Hickman has a history of arrests that include disorderly intoxication, marijuana possession and battery. His most recent arrest was three years ago.
