CNN made the news today when a car smashed into its building in Atlanta.

The allegedly drunk driver of a black Mercedes Benz, who has not been identified, ploughed through the glass at 4.15am, according to WSB-TV.

He has since been charged with driving under the influence, reckless driving and marijuana possession.

Two people were in the car at the time of the crash but there were no reported injuries.

Cop John Chafee said the driver had been smoking marijuana earlier.

A section of glass around 10ft high and about 15ft long had been taken out by the impact of the hit.
