A 19-year old man is facing DWI charges after slamming into the gate at the Naval Air Station.

The accident happened a little before midnight. Witnesses said the Hispanic man offered them drugs and drove off. Shortly after, he came back, slammed into the gate and drove off.

Officers tracked him down at a home on Woodlawn, where he appeared to be intoxicated. He was taken to Christus Spohn South Hospital with minor injuries.

The Naval Air Station is investigating.
