El Paso County Sheriff's Deputies arrested a man for allegedly driving more than three times the legal limit and smashing into several cars in a parking lot Friday night.

EPCSO Deputies were called out to the 400 block of La Florida St. in Canutillo around 5:45 p.m. Friday night after witnesses reported seeing a grey Mercedes Benz smashing into several cars located in a parking lot in the 6800 block of Doniphan in Canutillo.
