Clovis pizzeria reopens after run-in with car

A Me-N-Ed's pizzeria in Clovis has reopened two days after a woman drove her car into the restaurant.

The 70-year-old woman was arrested on warrants from the mid-1990s after she drove into the building at Willow and Nees avenues about 3 p.m. Sunday.

Clovis police said the woman mistook the car's accelerator pedal for the brake. No one, including the woman, was injured.

When police did a records check on the woman, they discovered she was sought for two warrants -- one for embezzlement and the other for grand theft, spokeswoman Janet Stoll-Lee said. She was booked into Fresno County jail and later released.
