HAMILTON, Ohio (FOX19) - A robbery suspect destroyed more than 100 bottles of alcohol at a Hamilton party store and also injured an officer, according to a report by Hamilton police.

According to the report, Jacob Shane Wright, 26, attempted to steal a bottle of alcohol from Noonan’s Party Store, located in the 1300 block of Main Street, around 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

A store clerk told Wright to put the bottle down and leave. The report says Wright went outside and broke the leg off a statue before he came back inside, threatened the employees, and broke the bottles.

Wright then kicked the front door at Noonan’s and went to a nearby CVS where an officer saw him, the report states.

It goes on to say that Wright ran across Brookwood Avenue before he jumped on top and damaged a police cruiser.

The report says Wright initially refused to put his hands behind his back, and an officer suffered a gash to his right hand and right leg during the struggle.

Officers were eventually able to arrest Wright.

He is facing one count of robbery, two counts of vandalism, one count of obstruction of official business, and one count of resisting arrest, according to the police report.
