(AP Photo/Myfoxatlanta.com) (Newser) – One way to help make sure the world doesn't hear about your arrest on DUI charges would be to avoid crashing into the headquarters of CNN. Gerlmy Javon Todd, 22, had the misfortune of doing just that overnight, though he, his passenger, and everyone else escaped injury when his Mercedes-Benz barreled through the lobby entrance of the building in Atlanta, reports Raw Story. Todd told police he had been smoking marijuana, and he still had some on him, reports WSB-TV. He was charged with DUI, reckless driving, and possession of marijuana.
