An off-duty Border Patrol agent drunkenly drove his truck into a Brownsville taqueria in the early-morning hours Thursday, police say.

Luis Alfredo Gonzalez, 24, faces DWI charges after driving into the popular local eatery called the Ultimo Taco Restaurant, the Brownsville Herald reported.

"Gonzalez was identified as the driver and it was determined that he lost control of the truck and it 'came to a rest inside the business,'" a police spokesperson told the paper.

The vehicle was a black pickup truck.
