Chico Police say a drunk driver crashed into the old Rabo bank at the corner of Mangrove and Palmetto avenues.

They say it happened just before 2 a.m., Saturday.

Police say the driver was not injured but has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

A service technician with maintenance plus was on scene throughout the day fixing the damage, he says this has happened before in the same area.

"It doesn't surprise me it’s happened four times in the last six months,” said Dean Atkinson, a service technician for Maintenance Plus.

No one was inside the building at the time of the crash.
