ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- A man drove his car into a wall at the Division of Motor Vehicles building, then walked in and renewed his driver's license, police say. Police believe the man was driving while impaired on medication and charged him with driving under the influence.

No one was injured.

The man's car went up over a sidewalk Thursday, denting the building's metal siding, cracking the inside of the wall and startling workers sitting nearby in the DMV's accounting department.

``I saw the guy back up, get out of his car and walk into the DMV like nothing happened,'' said DMV employee Michelle Steinman.

No one in the public area of the DMV noticed the accident. Workers in accounting notified higher-ups and pointed out the driver, who had taken a number, apologizing to a clerk that he had ``tapped'' the building.

By the time police arrived, the man had paid $20 and renewed his license.
