A California man has been arrested after he allegedly drove onto a sidewalk and intentionally hit a group of people before driving the vehicle into a Kohl’s department store — all while under the influence of drugs, officials claimed.

Around 8 p.m. on Oct. 13, Tuan Miller, 54, allegedly drove onto the sidewalk outside the Kohl’s department store in Huntington Beach, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.

Several people were standing on the sidewalk listening to singers when Miller allegedly struck two women, resulting in minor injuries, officials said.

Authorities claimed Miller then revved his engine and accelerated toward three other people, striking one, who “became lodged in the front of Miller’s car as it crashed through the store’s glass doors.”

Officials said Miller fled the scene, but he was later located and apprehend.

The incident reportedly caused $425,000 worth of damages to the store.

On Oct. 20, the Orange County DA’s Office announced Miller was charged with six felony counts of attempted murder, one felony count of driving under the influence of a drug causing injury, one felony count of vandalism, and one felony count of evading a police officer.

"Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol has catastrophic and often deadly consequences," Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in a statement. "The decision to get behind the wheel while intoxicated by either drugs or alcohol is never the right decision."

If convicted, Miller faces up to life in prison. He is next scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 3.
