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."

    Wow! 22nd time in one county?? With the damage this man did and on purpose and injuring 2? He obviously has a problem and should have sat in jail til his court date and the judge should seriously consider something drastic before he kills people. That seems to be the next step. He is a reckless individual that I dont want to come into contact with. Something could be done…he is a danger to society and himself.

    sad to say this man is the grandfather of my child. he has never been allowed to come around cause of his drug and alcohol addiction. my mother and brother are the two that was injured (what are the odds) for him to be free is EXTREMELY outragious he will NEVER change amd needs to be locked up before he kills and trust me when i say he will keep doing stupids acts and WILL eventually kill someone..
