With all due

respect the incident does justify at least one felony charge. A charge of "Assault Inflicting Serious Bodily Injury", NCGS 14-32.4, would be appropriate in this case based on the severity of the injury to the driver's eye. The article states the driver suffered 5 broken bones to his optical socket on his eye & that he's being referred to a specialist because they aren't sure if the bones will collapse once the swelling goes down.
I think Surf City PD has done a good job overall but I think they should add the felony charge based on that injury. If you read the elements for the charge I'm pretty sure this would qualify based on the severity of that injury. Just my .02...
