DETROIT (WJBK) -

A suspected drunk driver slammed into a Detroit bike shop.  It was all caught on camera.  However, it's what the driver and her passengers did after the crash that has everyone talking.

"Can't be drinking and driving and crashing into bike shops," said Dalton Cooper.

Especially while surveillance cameras are rolling.  It happened at Bike Tech on Detroit's east side early Thursday morning.

Video shows a truck and a sedan driving east on Warren towards the shop.  The sedan makes a turn, but the truck not so much.  A guy inside the truck bails out leaving two others to clean up the mess.  The women dressed to party try to move the truck, taking turns pushing it and appear to be freaking out, but the truck wouldn't budge.  One tries to ditch what appears to be a box of beers behind a bush, but her buddy clearly thought leaving the truck was more than enough.

"Hiding their beer, tossing their beer cans all over the place," Cooper said.  "They obviously wanted to get away from what they did."

Cooper got the call from the alarm company and made it to the shop just minutes after the trio took off, but the truck itself is more than enough evidence.  The plate led to a home nearby, and neighbors seemed to recognize the women caught on tape.  So it's only a matter of time before the driver gets busted for leaving behind more than $10,000 worth of damage.

"They obviously need to turn themselves in.  If not, I'm sure they'll get caught," Cooper said.

    Wineries flourish in Brooklyn

    Hundreds of oak barrels of wine are all stacked in one room. You might think this is Napa, California. But it's not. It's the Brooklyn Winery, located in what was once an old pickle factory in Williamsburg. Refrigerated grapes are brought in from the North Fork of Long Island and from the Finger Lakes and then aged in barrels. These days urban wineries are becoming more popular, and they're popping up all over the borough.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a sweeping report Thursday that examined New York City's recovery progress from Superstorm Sandy and promised to reform a much-maligned program that was supposed to rebuild wrecked homes. Speaking to about 50 homeowners, officials and community leaders in a storm-battered Staten Island neighborhood, the mayor said the city is aiming to start rebuilding an ambitious 500 homes through its federally funded Build-It-Back program.
