A man has been charged with driving under the influence, among other charges, after a Cary, N.C. hot dog vendor says the man intentionally crashed into his van twice on the morning of November 25 after he refused to sell the man a hot dog and drink for $1.


According to police, 23-year-old Rolesville, N.C. resident David Lance had been drinking before leaving Pure Gold, a strip club, around 2 .am. and attempted to order food at Fady Awad’s stand outside the club.


Kelbaugh said he had $1 and wanted a hot dog and drink, according to police. Awad said he politely informed him he could not do that.


Kelbaugh then yelled at Awad before entering his car, ramming the vendor’s van, and running into a brick column, according to Awad. He then pulled into reverse and struck Awad’s van a second time.


Police say Awad suffered injuries to his back in the collision. He received treatment at a nearby hospital and was released several hours later.


Kelbaugh was stopped by police a short time later. They arrested him on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, DUI, hit-and-run, injury to personal property, and injury to real property. He has been released on $6,000 bond.
