A 70-year-old Fresno woman, wanted on arrest warrants dating from the mid-1990s, was arrested Sunday after she accidentally crashed her car into a Clovis Me-N-Ed's pizza restaurant, the Clovis Police Department said.
The woman, attempting to park her car, mistook the car's gas pedal for the brake and drove into the Me-N-Ed's restaurant at Willow and Nees avenues around 3 p.m., said Clovis police spokeswoman Janet Stoll-Lee. The car drove through one of the windows.
Inside the restaurant were six customers and the restaurant employees, Stoll-Lee said. No one, including the driver, was injured.
When police did a cursory records check on the woman, they discovered she was wanted on two outstanding warrants from the mid-1990s -- one for embezzlement and the other for grand theft, Stoll-Lee said.

The woman was arrested for the warrants. She was booked at the Fresno County Jail and later released, Stoll-Lee said.
The restaurant is currently closed and Me-N-Ed's officials could not be reached for comment on a reopening date.
