WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Investigators say Friday night, 26-year-old Jacob Spivey drove into the side of Katy’s on South College Rd. on purpose.
Police say Spivey got into a political argument with a fellow patron at Katy’s restaurant and bar.
They say he was so upset he left the bar and got in his car, but not to leave.
Detectives say Spivey drove his car through the wall of the restaurant in an attempt to run down the woman he had argued with.
That woman was sent to the hospital with severe cuts and broken bones but is expected to be okay.
Police later found Spivey and they say he admitted he drove through the restaurant on purpose.
Spivey was charged with hit and run causing serious injury, reckless driving, injury to real property, and 11 counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
The damage to the building is estimated to be about $50,000.
Spivey is out of jail tonight under a $100,000 secured bond.
