Police: Driver’s wild ride injures 2, leaves trail of damage in Davenport
A local man spent about two hours in jail after he allegedly ran a truck into a building, a fence, poles and other vehicles in downtown Davenport.
Jail records show Christian Nacos, 44, spent several hours in the Scott County Jail when he was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia shortly after midnight Friday, July 4, 2014. About three hours after he was booked, Nacos was released on $300 bond.
Three days later, Nacos was again arrested in Davenport, for allegedly crashing a truck into a building, two light poles, a fence and several parked cars.
Police said Nacos was driving a Ford F-150 pickup truck when he lost control and crashed into the 3rd Street Bar and Grill at 831 West 3rd Street just before 11:30 a.m. Monday, July 7, 2014. Nacos then allegedly left the scene of that wreck, turning south on Brown Street and then trying to turn west onto West 2nd Street.
That’s when Nacos allegedly lost control again, running his truck into a light pole and crossing the road where he ran into a second pole. His truck then hit a parked car, with someone sitting in it and someone standing next to it, in front of 815 West 2nd Street. Those two people were taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say Nacos kept going, traveling westbound on West 2nd Street. When he tried to turn into ATC Liquor at 214 Myrtle Street, Nacos again allegedly lost control of his truck. Police said he hit a chain link fence, and then struck a parked car that he pushed into another parked car. The truck then backed up and hit a grease dumpster, police said.
“The driver of the suspect vehicle was located near the vehicle in the parking lot of the ATC Liquor,” said Capt. Paul Sikorski of the Davenport Police Department.
Nacos was charged with operating while intoxicated second offense, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, leaving the scene of a property damage accident, two counts of striking fixtures and three counts of failure to maintain control, Sikorski said.
Nacos suffered minor injury, for which he was treated at a local hospital before he was booked into the Scott County Jail.
Jail records show Nacos spent about two hours in custody July 7 before he was released on $4,800 bond.
