Corey Barr, 33, was arrested early Sunday morning.

Court documents accuse Barr of being behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Camaro when he hit a pedestrian in the parking lot of Legends Sports Bar around 1:14 a.m. Sunday.

Barr left the scene and later hit a Ford F-250 on the 2800 block of Messanie sending two people to the hospital.

The destruction didn't end there.

Barr allegedly continued to drive without a front right wheel until he struck a parked car in the 2400 block of Sylvanie Street.

According to a probable cause statement, officers found a bottle of Patron Tequila in the front passenger seat. Barr allegedly told officers he drank 4-5 beers along with three shots while taking medication before leaving Legends Bar.

The late spring heat continues into Monday with lots of sunshine and highs in the middle 90s. Feels like temperatures will be around 100 degrees once again. A Heat Advisory remains is in effect until 8pm Monday for the entire KQ2 viewing area. Best advice is to drink plenty of fluids, stay in air-conditioned rooms, and stay out of the sun. Big changes move in for the new workweek as relief from the dry conditions & summer heat is on the way beginning into Tuesday.
