(CBS/AP) PITTSBURGH - Monday night wasn't the best of times for the folks who run Schorr Bakery.

Police say a drunk driver lost control around 10:30 p.m., crashed into the bakery and then left the scene. Tenants living in three apartments above the shop were evacuated and the bakery storefront was in shambles, CBS Pittsburgh reported.

The alleged driver of the careening Chevy Trailblazer was identified as 26-year-old Robert Czuba. He was arrested at his home a short time later, according to CBS Pittsburgh.

The bakery arranged for customers to pick up Tuesday's holiday orders at another location in the suburb of West View.

Owner Jim Schorr said he expected the Pittsburgh location to reopen Wednesday.
