JOINT BASE ANDREWS, MD. (WJZ) — A man who officials said was under the influence rammed his truck multiple times into an entry control point of Joint Base Andrews on March 6, a JBA spokesperson said Thursday.

They said at around 1:25 p.m., a 29-year-old man drove into the swing arm barrier multiple times with a Ford F-150 truck. U.S. Air Force Security Forces airmen put out mechanical road barriers so the man veered across the median and into a field.
