HUDSON — A city man was charged with drunken driving after he crashed a vehicle into the window of a Warren Street business on Wednesday causing hundreds of dollars in damage, police said.

Francisco Angel Garcia-Baquiax, 32, of Hudson, was charged driving while intoxicated, an unclassified misdemeanor, according to a statement from the Hudson Police Department.

Garcia-Baquiax had blood-alcohol content of 0.20, over twice the 0.08 legal limit, when he swerved a 2006 Infiniti, hit a parked car and continued through a window of Marx Home Furnishings, 344 Warren St., at about 8 p.m., according to police.

No injuries were reported.

The window of the kitchen and bathroom furnishings store was boarded up Thursday morning.

Garcia-Baquiax was arraigned in city court and released on his own recognizance. He is due back in court Sept. 19 to answer the charge, police said.

Hudson firefighters also responded to the incident.
