WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police say a Pennsylvania man was driving drunk when he hit seven parked cars over the weekend downtown.

A WPD spokeswoman says officers arrested Michael Sweeny, 32, in the 200 block of Orange Street Saturday. Investigators say he hit the cars between the intersection of 3rd and Orange streets and the 100 block of 2nd Street.

Sweeny is charged with DWI and hit and run leaving the scene of property damage. He got out of jail yesterday on $3,000 bond.

Sweeny is due back in court Sept. 18.
