Edmonds, 24, was accused of reckless driving and leaving the scene of a crash
Incredibly, no one was injured in the accident that occurred Thursday at a BP station in Ortonville, about 50 miles northwest of Detroit, although broken bottled drinks led to a small fire.
The Oakland Public Prosecutor accused Edmonds of reckless driving and not reporting an accident.
According to the sheriff's office, Edmonds seemed to suddenly accelerate in the parking lot of the gas station around 2.30 am before he hit a gas pump and walked straight into the store.
Edmonds, who is regularly at the gas station, explained to the police that he had been drinking before the crash.

The accident caused enormous damage within the company and even set fire to a small fire
An employee told the police that Edmonds bought a beer, opened it, and then got into his truck at the moments before the crash.
He said he wanted to drive around the gas pumps because his new tires are easy to turn, according to an incident report as seen by NBC News but & # 39; was not going to bump into the station or hurt anyone & # 39 ;.
He told the police that he was trying to turn around 180 degrees.
Before he walked out of the store, Edmonds tore his license plate amid the massacre because & # 39; he felt scared & # 39 ;.
Edmonds was introduced and released for $ 5,000, but was instructed never to return to the gas station.
He also has to undergo drug and alcohol tests twice a week.
