KINGSPORT — A Kingsport man added new meaning to the term drive-thru on Wednesday, allegedly driving his car through the front of a Colonial Heights restaurant while huffing air duster.

No one was present when the Lexus crashed through a line of windows at Zachary's Steak House, continuing some 60 feet until it hit an ice machine. Manager Scottie Ketron reports 12 booths, tiling and carpet was destroyed, while the ceiling also suffered significant damage.

"It's unreal — he came all the way through, almost to the kitchen," said Ketron. "He came in here probably with his foot all the way to the floor."
