A suspected drunk driver banged up cars and drove into a fence in the Uptown Park area overnight. It happened on Uptown Park Boulevard near the West Loop. Police say the suspect was partying at a nightclub nearby and was intoxicated when he got behind the wheel. But he didn't get far.

Authorities say the suspect left the Belvedere nightclub around 1:45am. Police say he was also carrying a bottle of liquor out to his vehicle. That's when he attempted to back out, slamming into two cars.

While continuing to leave, police say he side-swiped a third car before losing control, jumping a median and then slamming into the fence of some condominiums.

The suspect was arrested and was charged with DWI.

An off-duty Houston police officer witnessed the whole thing.

No one was injured during the incident.
