A North Little Rock man is accused of falling asleep at the wheel and then crashing into a house when authorities awakened him.

Antonio Davis, 37, is facing charges including driving while intoxicated, driving with a suspended license and refusing a chemical test.

Police were called about 4 a.m. Sunday to 37th Street and Pike Avenue in North Little Rock to investigate a possible drunken driver.

Officers found Davis asleep behind the wheel of a Kia stopped in the northbound lane of Pike Avenue, according to a North Little Rock police report. They awakened him, at which point the car went forward across the intersection and into the side of a house at 3705 Pike Ave.

Police said Davis was "too intoxicated" to perform field sobriety tests, but he had a strong odor of intoxicants on his person, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. According to the report, he later refused a blood-alcohol level breath test.

Davis wasn't injured in the crash. On Monday, only small damage was visible on the house, including a bent metal support beam connected to an overhang above the front door.
