MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A wild night was caught on camera in downtown Memphis as an out-of-control driver plowed into eight vehicles parked along Front Street as dozens of people watched. 

No one was injured, but witnesses say someone needs to be held accountable.

Video shot around 11:30 Saturday night shows a Chevy Impala backing up and ramming into vehicles parked along the street. A witness yells, ‘Hey, they might be drunk, take them out the car!'”

But video shows the car keeps moving. As another person comes to the passenger-side door, it opens and a man takes off running. An off-duty police officer tried to catch the man but he got away. 

According to witnesses and a police report, it was a woman who was driving during the chaos. The woman listed in a crash report as the driver is Amber Betts of Southaven.

Two witnesses said initially it appeared there was a problem with the car.

But now there’s the question of who was behind the wheel at the time of the collisions. A witness we talked to and several others listed in a police report said it was a woman.

But when Memphis Police questioned the woman she said it was actually her boyfriend. 

She told officers he was intoxicated, when he started crashing into the cars she got back into the backseat of the car and held on before he got out of the car and ran.

She said she then attempted to get the car unstuck. She also said she had been drinking alcohol.

Officers say she passed a field sobriety test, but refused a breathalyzer test.  

That woman was cited failure to maintain proper control. 

We asked police about the charges and are waiting to hear back.
