A 29-year-old Arkansas man was arrested late Tuesday after his vehicle struck a pawn shop and he fled the scene, authorities say.

The Hot Springs Sentinel-Record reported that John Robert Niemeyer faces misdemeanor charges of driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident involving property damage and failure to present proof of insurance.

Niemeyer's vehicle was reportedly headed west on Highway 270 west when it struck the side of 270 Pawn Shop, located at 4430 Albert Pike Road. The Hot Springs resident fled the scene, continuing on the highway until he hit a guardrail, according to a probable cause affidavit cited by the newspaper.

The Sentinel-Record reported that Niemeyer later returned to the scene and told authorities that he was the vehicle's driver. He reportedly refused to cooperate during a field sobriety test and was arrested about 10:45 p.m. Tuesday.

He was later released on $2,000 bond. A court sate of Oct. 2 has been set, according to the newspaper.

A pawn shop told an Arkansas Online reporter Thursday morning that there was significant damage to one of the business's walls.

Seems pretty pleased with himself from the mugshot. Hope he spends enough time in jail to appreciate what he did and how serious DWI is.
