Clean-up begins at Riley High School after a drunk driver crashes through the front doors.

Just after ten Thursday night police say 40-year-old Ted Ballin crashed his jeep into Riley High School.

He drove right through the front door, kept going through the lobby, side swiped the wall, before finally stopped at the stairs.

School was still in session Friday.

The doors were boarded up and now barriers are being put up in front of the school.

"He came around the corner and he peeled. He was going so fast. We lookin like what's wrong with him? Is he serious? We just knew he was going to stop, going to brake. And said oh my god he went into the school, says witness Earnestine Garvin.

Police say 40-year-old Ted Ballin's blood alcohol content was three times the legal limit. The passenger did suffer from minor injuries and was taken the hospital. Ballin is being charged with a felony DUI because of his reckless behavior.
