Man charged with DUI after allegedly crashing into salon

Police charged a man with driving under

the influence after he allegedly crashed a Nissan Pathfinder into a

building on U.S. 49, destroying a hair salon that just opened.

Gulfport police said no one was hurt when Alexander Garcia

Contreras of Oaxaca, Mexico allegedly plowed into the building

Friday night. He was also charged with having no insurance or

driver's license and leaving the scene of an accident.

He was being held at Harrison County jail on a $1,920 bond. It

was not immediately clear if he had hired an attorney. Police said

Contreras and his passengers may have stolen beer just before the

accident.
