Intoxicated Scottsdale Man Smashes Three Patrol Cars

Comments Off

A rowdy scene at Jade Palace restaurant in Scottsdale ended with one arrest and five wrecked cars on Wednesday night.

According to Scottsdale police, officers arrived at the restaurant and found Erin Bryant, 31, asleep in his pickup truck.

When officers approached the driver’s window, Bryant began to back up and rammed into a police officer’s patrol car, which struck two other vehicles in the parking lot, police said.

Bryant reversed direction and drove onto the hood of a second police car, and a third police vehicle — a full-size SUV — pinned Bryant’s truck against the other cars, police said.

Officers continued to try and talk with Bryant but he physically resisted and police used a Taser stun gun to contain him.

While no one was injured, three police and two civilian vehicles sustained thousands of dollars in damage.

Bryant was arrested on several charges including driving under the influence, aggravated DUI, driving with a suspended license and more.
