A South Carolina motorist smacked up six cars as he drunkenly careened down Main Street in Brewster early Monday morning, Putnam County Sheriff Donald Smith said Tuesday.

Marcos Castro-Beltran, 28, of Aiken, S.C., was found by a sheriff's deputy standing by his wrecked 2005 Ford, which was missing a wheel, after it came to rest on Main Street at about 1:30 a.m.

Castro-Beltran's vehicle hit five used cars in the lot of A&R Used Cars and then bounced into a parked car in the driveway of a private home. He then smashed his car into a utility pole before it slid down a dirt embankment and up onto the sidewalk, said the sheriff's office.

No one was hurt in the crashes.

Deputy Sheriff Frederick Mark said Castro-Beltran failed several field sobriety tests before he was arrested. He was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, and held at Putnam County Jail in Carmel. A lawyer for Castro-Beltran could not be immediately located.
