Suspect jailed more than 20 times before Davenport hit-and-run spree

People in Davenport said they were shocked to see a Quad Cities man driving into buildings, light poles, parked cars, and even people.

On Monday morning, July 7, 2014, Davenport Police arrested 44-year-old Christian Nacos after he reportedly crashed several times, before ending in the parking lot at ATC liquor.

Tina Hauser, who owns 3rd Street Bar and Grill, said she was serving customers when Nacos crashed into the side of the building.

“Me and few of my regular customers were just talking and all of a sudden it was the loudest sound I’d ever heard,” Hauser said. “It was a big bang and then you saw the door fly open.”

Hauser said the building’s front door won’t close now and she has to take extra measures to lock up at the end of the night.

“I’m shocked, he ruined my building.” said Hauser.

The two people hit during the incident were taken to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Police said this is the second time Nacos has been arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated and his 22nd time in the Scott County Jail, since 2011.

“He should have sat there until [his court date],” said concerned citizen, Anthony Rasor. “He’s just very, very lucky that he’s still alive and other people are still alive.”
