WAGNER - A Ravinia man was indicted Wednesday and charged with assault after intentionally driving into a parked vehicle, according to court documents.
Jordan Adams, 26, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of intentional damage to property after allegedly ramming a vehicle twice on Jan. 10 outside Wagner Super Foods on Main Avenue in Wagner.
Wagner police arrived on scene at about 12:20 a.m., where a crowd of people were surrounding a 2014 Dodge Charger that was crashed into the Wagner Super Foods building, court documents state.
A woman, who earlier was driving the Charger, said she and another woman were approached by Adams while the car was parked. Adams allegedly knocked on the passenger window and wanted the second woman to come with him.
After refusing, Adams walked back to his vehicle, a Chevy Impala. The driver of the Charger exited the vehicle, but Adams allegedly accelerated and struck the back of the Charger while the passenger was still inside.
According to court documents, Adams reversed the Impala, asked the woman to come with him again and rammed the Charger a second time, causing it to strike the Wagner Super Foods building. Adams allegedly proceeded westbound on First Street at a high speed.
The woman passenger left the scene before officers arrived. The Charger sustained extensive damage, including a broken back bumper and heavy front-end damage, and was not driveable. The Wagner Super Foods building sustained a crack in the brick wall extending from the point of impact to the top of the building. The building sustained an estimated $16,400 in damage, according to the Charles Mix County State's Attorney's Office. No damage estimates have been provided for the vehicle.
The Impala was found abandoned on 295th Street northwest of Wagner North Housing, court documents state. Adams was not at the scene, and he wasn't arrested until Feb. 7, according to the State's Attorney's Office. He is still being held in custody on a $2,000 bond.
Adams was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, Class 3 felonies, punishable upon conviction by up to 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine; intentional damage to property valued between $5,000 and $100,000, a Class 4 felony, punishable upon conviction by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine; and intentional damage to property valued between $2,500 and $5,000, a Class 5 felony, punishable upon conviction by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
