NEWPORT, Del. (AP) - Police say a drunk driver crashed into Newport’s historic town hall.

Police say 33-year-old Charles Allen Ray of New Castle failed to negotiate a curve properly early Tuesday and hit the building at 15 N. Augustine St. Police say the crash happened around 2 a.m.

The News Journal of Wilmington, Del. (https://delonline.us/NXI2MT ) reports town meetings are still held monthly in the brick building that dates back to the late 1800s. A building inspector has deemed the building “unsafe.”

Ray has been charged with drunk driving, driving while suspended and unsafe speed. He did not appear to have a listed phone number.
