The video shows the car on the wrong side of the road, hops the curb, sheers off a street sign, and then careens into the store, just missing the two rows of gas pumps.

Albany Police say Robinson had minor injuries. He's charged with DWI, speeding, and drinking alcohol inside the car.

Building inspectors say that section is not safe.
