Palm Coast, FL - The investigation into last week's brawl at Ralph Carter Park in Palm Coast discovered that another victim had been run over by a blue BMW that was driving recklessly through the park grounds during the altercation. Video evidence suggests that the driver of the vehicle purposefully attempted to run over the victim. The Flagler County Sheriff's Office (FCSO) got a warrant for the driver, 18-year-old David Reis on Monday (April 12) and arrested him at his home later that day.
“This guy is lucky that he didn’t kill the victim and that he’s not in jail for murder,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “The vehicle is the deadly weapon in this case and if you’ve seen the video, it is hard to believe that the victim walked away with minor injuries. Great work by our team in locating him and getting him behind bars before he can hurt anyone else. I hope this is a lesson to everyone else that this type of behavior will not be tolerated in Flagler County and we will continue investigating incidents like this until all offenders are arrested and behind bars.”
Reis is charged with Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon and Aggravated Child Abuse. He's been released on a $17,500 bond.
