An Oklahoma City man accused of crashing into multiple cars while leaving a drive-in movie was arrested early Sunday.

Curtis Russell, 33, was arrested on a complaint of drunken driving at the Winchester Drive-In Theatre, 6930 S Western Ave., police said.


Officers responded to the theater about 1 a.m. Sunday to find several people holding Russell on the ground to prevent him from leaving.

Witnesses told police Russell ran his car into several cars on his way out of the theater parking lot and only stopped when he rear-ended a vehicle. One of the people in a car that was hit was taken to a local hospital with a neck injury, police said.

Officers said Russell smelled of alcohol, was unsteady on his feet and had slurred speech. At one point, he asked his girlfriend to throw a bottle of alcohol in his car over the fence so police couldn’t find it, according to the report.

Russell told officers his car’s brakes were not working and he did not mean to hurt anyone.

He was booked into Oklahoma County jail and released Monday on $5,000 bond.
