News: Drunk driver crashes through wall of Pepsi Pavilion

WATERLOO, IA - A man was arrested after crashing his pickup truck through the wall of a National Cattle Congress venue early Sunday morning.

According to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, police were called to 257 Ansborough Avenue at about 1:35 a.m. on November 7, after a 28-year-old man lost control of his truck and slammed into the side of the Pepsi Pavilion. The vehicle broke through the corrugated metal wall of the women's bathroom, damaging four sinks and becoming lodged in the building.

Fortunately, no one was in the bathroom at the time of the collision, and the driver was unhurt.

Responding police officers arrested the man after he refused a field sobriety test and displayed signs of intoxication.

The National Cattle Congress is currently seeking repair estimates. Representatives said that several upcoming events would need to be rescheduled because of the damage.
