Jen captures this bizarre scene:

“A bit of excitement outside Paisano’s in Georgetown tonight. Delivery driver somehow gunned it through the brick wall and onto the grass outside the Boys and Girls Club at Jelleff Rec Center. Nobody was hurt but we felt badly for the young guy inside the pizza place who had lent the driver his truck.”
