A 76-year-old man faces charges after an incident in the parking lot of the Watertown Starbucks during which he allegedly struck numerous cars and crashed into the building.

Witnesses told police a car came into the parking lot of Starbucks on Mt. Auburn Street and while he backed into a space on the far side of the lot, he sideswiped a car, said Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn.

“Then he sped forward across the parking lot striking another vehicle,” Lawn said. “He went back into reverse and hit two parked cars.”

The man drove forward again and hit some bricks and mental, causing some debris to fly into the seating area of Starbuck’s.

“One man received minor injuries to his ankle,” Lawn said.

Police summonsed the 76-year-old Watertown man to Waltham District Court on a charge of negligent operation of a motor vehicle, Lawn said. Police did not release the man’s name.
