Charlotte Observer -

NEWTON, N.C. – A Hickory man is waiting to hear the list of charges he’ll face after slamming into a DWI mobile command center Sunday morning.

The incident happened on US 321 at the intersection of 9th street around 2:45am. Law enforcement were conducting a DWI checkpoint when a 1989 red Camaro rammed into the back of the "Booze it and Lose it" mobile unit. We're told people were inside the unit at the time, but thankfully no one was injured.

Newton police tell NewsChannel 36, 21-year Douglas Shane Southard was driving the Camaro. Shane was transported to Catawba Memorial with non-life threatening injuries.
