Pittsburgh police have charged a Castle Shannon man with multiple offenses — including driving under the influence, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and accidents involving damage to an unattended vehicle — after he lost control of his Jeep early Saturday morning on the South Side, smashing into numerous obstructions and another person.

Public safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler said Maceo Fulmore, 23, crashed into the front of Diesel Club Lounge on East Carson Street near 17th Street around 2:30 a.m. and proceeded to hit seven vehicles, two parking signs, two trees, a fence, a telephone pole and a fire hydrant. He struck a male in his 20s who was taken to UPMC Mercy for related injuries. Authorities are not releasing the injured man's name.

There were no other reported injuries, Ms. Toler said.

An officer patrolling nearby heard the series of collisions and found witnesses dragging Mr. Fulmore from his car and punching him. The arresting officer broke up the fray, and reported Mr. Fulmore was visibly drunk.

Mr. Fulmore is in Allegheny County Jail and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 1, according to criminal dockets.

Authorities are still estimating the full extent and cost of damages from the wrecks.
