Two drunk driving incidents a mere six minutes apart caused significant damage to Kentlands property Saturday morning, according to Gaithersburg Police.
At 5:13 a.m., 19-year-old Jarrad Mathew O’Brien, of Germantown, lost control of his 1992 BMW at the Kentlands Civic Center and drove across the grassy field and through the iron fence of the pool, finally coming to rest after striking numerous stone pillars, Gaithersburg Police officer Dan Lane told Patch.
Minutes earlier, 19-year-old Jonathan Juhan Aquino, also of Germantown, lost control of his 1998 Acura and struck a transformer box at the intersection of Great Seneca Highway and Kentlands Boulevard, ending up against a brick wall, Lane said.
There was no damage to the brick wall, which is located behind Buca di Beppo.
Both drivers were issued traffic citations charging them with Driving Under the Influence related charges, failing to remain at the scene of an accident and various other traffic related charges, Lane said.
