GAITHERSBURG, Md. -- A suspected drunk driver plowed into six vehicles in Gaithersburg, Md. early last Saturday morning and was arrested by officers who responded to the scene.
The accident happened on Watkins Mill road near Smooth Stone Way at 3:30 a.m. on December 8th, according to Montgomery County Police.
James Ambale, 44, of Germantown, Md. was taken into custody on suspicion of drunk driving and driving on a revoked license.
