Drunk Driver Crashes Into Miami Cemetery Night Before Halloween

Oh, sure, it's that time of year when we pretend to be afraid of vampires, mummies and zombies. But let's not forget who the real monsters are: drunk drivers.

Last night, a night some call "Mischief Night," a drunk driver lost control of his car and careened into the gate of Woodlawn Cemetery.

According to WSVN, last night the man, driving a black Audi, crashed into the gate of the cemetery at 3260 SW Eighth Street.

Luckily, no one was injured and no grave sites were damaged.

After crashing into the cemetery the man was taking somewhere even scarier: Miami jail. He's charged with driving under the influence.
