Man Arrested for Intentionally Crashing into Car Dealership in Colonie
Have you ever been so mad you just felt like driving your car right into the business that is the focus of your rage? That's the kind of thing that only happens in movies, right? Well, apparently Richard Reed from Albany not only knows this kind of rage but allegedly will act on it too.
Apparently Mr. Reed has some kind of disagreement with the sales staff at the Depaula Auto Group on Central Avenue on Thursday, September 17th. After arguing with employees inside the dealership Reed walked outside and got in his vehicle. The staff just assumed that he was leaving. Instead, according to the Colonie Police report, he revved his engine a couple of times and then deliberately drove into the dealership. One salesperson tried to jump out of the way but got pinned by Reed's vehicle that caused injuries to his lower leg.
Colonie Police arrested Richard Reed on Monday, September 21st, and has charged him with felony second-degree assault, criminal mischief, and reckless endangerment. He's scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday to face the charges.
As far as I'm concerned this is the only way driving through a building is appropriate.
