Drunken man arrested after driving into San Bruno building

A 22-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and possession of a loaded firearm and drugs after crashing into a business in San Bruno early Monday morning, police said.

The crash was reported at about 2 a.m. on El Camino Real, where a witness reported seeing a silver sedan leave the roadway and crash into a building, according to police.

Officers found the driver, San Bruno resident Julio Anthony Mejia, passed out behind the wheel of the vehicle that had prescription drugs inside that were not prescribed to him, police said.

Mejia was also in possession of the loaded firearm and was booked into San Mateo County jail on suspicion of DUI and the illegal possession of the firearm and drugs.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call San Bruno police at (650) 616-7100 or email sbpdtipline@sanbruno.ca.gov.
