Police said a North Carolina man rammed his car into a hot dog stand when the vendor refused to sell him a hot dog and drink for a dollar. WRAL-TV reported 23-year-old David Kelbaugh of Rolesville was charged Wednesday with assault with a deadly weapon, hit-and-run, driving while intoxicated and injury to property. Police said Kelbaugh was drinking at a bar in Cary early Wednesday when he left to order food at the hot dog stand.

Kelbaugh asked for a hot dog and a drink for one dollar and the vendor told him that wasn't enough money.

Police said Kelbaugh yelled at the vendor, got in his car and rammed the hot dog stand twice. The vendor was treated for back injuries. His name was not released.

Kelbaugh fled and was later arrested. He's been released on $6,000 bond. A phone number for Kelbaugh was disconnected.
