OKLAHOMA CITY – A man is arrested for DUI for allegedly driving his car into an Oklahoma City apartment complex.

It happened around 8:20 a.m. Sunday at the Tammaron Village Apartments off N. Council and West Heffner Road.

Officers say the driver, Paul Lange, also known as John Lange, mistook his gas pedal for the brakes.

That mistake sent him barreling into a lower apartment where his car got stuck.

Police say Lange tried to back out and eventually left the vehicle and ran into an upstairs apartment.

Two people were inside the apartment where the crash happened, but no one was hurt.

That apartment does have some minor damage.

Lange was found a short time later and was arrested for DUI.
