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.

Democrat. Go to the NC Board of Elections web site and look it up. Some of the other commenters who hoped he was a Republican may be disappointed. Also, go to the other online sources where you can view his mugshot. The minute I read about a political argument being the cause of this, I thought this sounds like the actions of a typical Democrat. Many of them are a violent, angry, miserable sort with the emotional stability of infants.

I was not there but if I were writing the fictional screenplay of the event, it would go something like this:

Woman: Logically, I can’t get behind the President. He’s failed in every way. He gave 90 billion in tax dollars to campaign contributor friends for “green energy projects” and almost all of that money has been squandered. His attempts to reform health care have done nothing but gut Medicare to the tune of 716 billion dollars and stole from our seniors and the disabled so he can buy more votes via expanding Medicaid. He insisted throughout the campaign that “if you make less than 250,000 dollars per year, you will not see your taxes go up by one penny.” He even insisted he’d cut taxes on the middle class. But what happened was he allowed the Social Security tax holiday to expire and raised our taxes. The one positive thing that happened under his “leadership,” getting Bin Laden, brave young members of DevGru performed while he ate pizza in the White House with Hillary. Let’s not even get started on the constant stream of lies his staff spewed after the Libyan Ambassador and brave former SEALs were killed because his administration denied the additional protection the Ambassador requested. After they were attacked in Libya, his administration left them exposed and begging for air cover. They were left to die.

Democrat Driver: Um, but, but, but, but Obama’s like the best president ever. HuffPo said so dude.

Woman: The facts speak for themselves. He is a disaster and history may well record his presidency as the beginning of the United States’ “Fall of Rome.”

Democrat Driver: But…Hopey Change, um, Yes We Can, um, Forward, Julia, um, um, um, um…

Woman: Face it, he’s likely the worst president in US history and he can’t even form a coherent sentence while speaking in front of school children without a teleprompter. He’s a media mirage and is only seen as a competent adult because he’s such a darling to those in mass media who control most information flow to the public.

Democrat Driver: Agggggahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Ugggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I’ll teach you to confront me with facts and logic!

Again, I wasn’t there. But knowing the emotionally unstable liberal species as well as I do, that’s my screenplay version of how it unfolded.

Anyone that says,”Democrats or Republicans are these kinda people”, are annoying!!!

Too bad you didnt take out more of the bar or the nightmare owner!

I could expect a right-winger to get po’ed enough to run you down with a car. Then again I have been p’o ed enough with a right-winger I could see myself using him as a chamois to shine my front bumper.

Hopefully he will get over his anger management issues and she learns that there is a time to hush her mouth.

It never ceases to amaze me how you libs ALWAYS put the blame on someone else. Funny to how he admitted though that he is crazy. We could of found that out by checking his voter registration card. He is a registered dem. lol .. Obviously this womans sane and rational comments were just too much for him. Once you mentally beat a dem (which isn’t hard to do) they instantly turn to hate speech and violence. Liberalism is a brain disease.

Ahhh, so she brought it on herself, did she?

It wouldn’t matter which affiliation people belong to. Politics is a very touchy subject. There are somethings that should not be talked about. One is politics and another is religion. I have seen first hand heated descussions on both. Both sides think that their answers are the right ones. If the talking these two were doing was about the weatehr this wouldn’t have happened.

Of course that’s only because 62.7% of all dems can’t pass their driver’s exam. :-)

Mr Spivey is a self centered democrat.

2015 years 8 months ago

I’ll bet he was a republican.

If you’re betting that Pharaoh….then you just lost that bet. Civil discourse is a conservative M.O. Violent reactions and character assassination is usually associated from the left i.e. Occupy, Media Matters, MoveOn.org…etc.

ROFL! (I do feel bad for the woman) The ONLY comment that comes to mind though is: U mad bro???

Maybe Obama and Biden should take away cars too…

2015 years 8 months ago

Time to ban them pesky cars! Assault cars they are.

This guy has no self control or respect for life. If he doesn’t get an active sentence then I will be sorely disappointed.

2015 years 8 months ago

Wonder why no one mentioned the political affiliation of either the assailant or the victim?

Given the usual leap to accuse, one might instantly assume this guy is another one of those demented TEA party types acting out his frustrations! Guess he didn’t have a high capacity magazine handy, so he made himself into a bullet!

What in the world is such a person thinking anyway? What kind of nut drives a car into a busy restaurant over political differences?

Well, surprise, surprise (or maybe not), the guy is a registered Democrat. Somebody call Joe Biden and lets get automobiles driven by Dems added to the ban list!

Holy cow! makes ya wonder what the woman said? I wonder how jacob would feel if he voted and then 10 random people ran him over and parked their cars on top of him, just because they didnt agree with his opinion.

2015 years 8 months ago

Yes she did.

I especially hate when them women dress provocatively exposing their eyes and legs or pretty much any body part.

May peace be upon you. (As-salamu alaykum).

If you are contributing to an argument and it escalates to the point where the other person is getting out of control,you need to take a step back and let cool things off. The guy could have just as easily brought in a gun and started shooting people.
