Charges: Man plows through wedding crowd with truck, injures 1


A St. James man is facing three felonies after attempting to run people over with a truck during a wedding celebration in Martin County last weekend.

KEYC reports during the early morning hours of June 9, 28-year-old Felipe Davila got into an altercation with guests at a post-wedding party after he was confronted about being inappropriate with women.

Davila, who authorities suspect was under the influence, became upset and got into his truck. According to the criminal complaint, Davila struck a man with the vehicle he was driving and dragged him or several feet. The driver then made other attempts to hit several more people.

When Martin County sheriff's deputies arrived, they found the victim suffering from cracked ribs and internal bleeding.

Davila was later arrested and booked into jail. He's since posted bail and is due back in court on June 17, KEYC says.
