(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A St. Joseph man faces felony drunk driving charges after he allegedly hit a pedestrian and two vehicles.


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.
