Meanwhile, security footage taken outside the restaurant showed the gray SUV speeding towards the parking lot.
He drives past two parked cars, scraping them as he goes, and smashes into the window, leaving rubble in his wake.
The driver ends up reversing the SUV as the people inside could be heard screaming.
Once the front of the SUV is moved back far enough, a man can be seen climbing out of the driver’s seat.
He is soon chased by a woman who came out of the passenger side door of the car and yelled at him “I f****** knew that” and “What the hell is wrong with you?”
As she goes to get something from the driver’s side, the man walks away from the camera, hands on his head.
Following the exchange, store manager Lisa Foster said the man appeared drunk and staggered as he tried to hide behind the restaurant’s trash can.
The woman in the video quickly found him, Foster told WXYZ, “and was screaming ‘Lorenzo, Lorenzo’.”
Surveillance footage from outside the restaurant also showed the SUV entering the parking lot at high speed

After the crash, the driver managed to back up and escape the car as a woman in the passenger seat chased him and yelled at him.
Foster said her boss and some of her colleagues “literally had to open the door to lift this big brick” of a woman.
“Someone could have been killed,” she said. “He could have killed someone.”
Fortunately, no serious injuries were reported.
