A man is in jail after attempting to drive his truck through the entrance of Lowe’s Friday evening.
Officers with the Greenville Police Department were dispatched to Lowe’s, 1886 Mississippi 1 S. in reference to a man driving a white Toyota truck into the front entrance.
The driver of the truck, 67-year-old black male Charles Lesure, assaulted one of the officers as they conducted their investigation, according to Assistant Police Chief Michael Merchant.
“A brief struggle ensued and the suspect was placed into custody,” Merchant said.
Lesure is being charged with Felony Malicious Mischief and Assault on an Law Enforcement Officer (LEO).
The motive is still under investigation, Merchant said.
No bond has been set at this time.
