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.

    I was there, next to the first city light pole he hit, not twenty feet from him when he saw the other white car, he backed up with full acceleration, put it in drive, again with full acceleration straight into the white sedan with the lady inside, he intended to hit her, he went even further pushing and dragging the car intentionally until I encounter the cab of his truck when he noticed me he stopped, turned the wheel to the left and sped away. To think this man was already in custody on Friday night for the same thing and no he is loose in the Quad Cities means no one is safe. The Judge in both instances failed the public. This was attempted murder. Unbelievable… incredulous that he is FREE RIGHT NOW.

    Well I guess he will have to kill someone before he is there longer and then eventually set free.
