Man Drives Truck Into Courthouse

Police say a man only in swimming trunks and wielding a baseball bat went on a vandalism spree at the home of his estranged wife and her former husband. Ronald Webb of Columbia is also accused of driving his pickup into the rear doors of the Adair County Courthouse.

Webb faces multiple charges from the Saturday night spree, including driving under the influence, criminal mischief, burglary and driving without insurance.

A Breathalyzer measured Webb's blood alcohol level at 0.19%, well above the legal limit of 0.8%.

State Trooper Martin Wesley says Webb, armed with an aluminum bat, allegedly struck three vehicles in the driveway at the home of Steve Franklin, the ex-husband of Webb's estranged wife.

Webb's wife, Marsha, moved into the house after she separated from Webb this month and filed for divorce. Webb also allegedly broke into the house, leaving damage estimated at $25,000. Wesley says among the items severely damaged were two televisions, two computers, an air conditioning unit, three fans, ten mirrors, two compact disc players, five doors and several walls. He also allegedly shattered a toilet.

The family had been away at the Kentucky State Fair.
