ALPINE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) -
Kent County Sheriff's investigators arrested a man Saturday evening who they say intentionally drove his vehicle into the front entrance of a bowling alley.
One woman was hurt during the incident at Westgate Bowl, 4486 Alpine Ave. NW, in Alpine Township. She suffered minor injuries to a leg.
Staff at the bowling alley told 24 Hour News 8 the man had been asked to leave after he was involved in a fight. Moments later, he crashed through the doors.
After the crash the man drove away from the scene but was arrested a short time later because witnesses were able to get his vehicle's license plate information.
Officers near his home were alerted and the suspect was pulled over and arrested.
The victim was a waitress at the bowling alley who just happened to be near the entrance. Co-workers said she was not involved in the altercation and don't believe she was an intended target.
Family members of the victim said she was with her young daughter when she was taken to a hospital. Co-workers said the woman lived nearby and her daughter rushed to the scene after getting word of the incident.
Late Saturday night investigators were working to obtain surveillance video of the incident as the investigation continues.
The Kent County Prosecutor's Office has reviewed the case and issued these charges against the suspect -- assault with a dangerous weapon (felonious assault) and operating with a high blood-alcohol content. His bond was set at $30,000.
