At 8:12 p.m., we were called to Petty’s Motel after a man
intentionally rammed his truck into the back of a parked car, forcing the car
into one of the motel rooms.
The incident began minutes earlier as a fight in the parking
lot involving the suspect, Kenny Price, 19, of Nacogdoches, and another man and
woman. Following the fight, Price got into his Dodge pickup and drove toward
the exit. He then circled back and rammed the woman’s car as she and the
man stood near it, talking.
The impact forced the car – a Nissan Sentra – through a
brick wall and into a motel room. Someone was staying in the room but
thankfully they were not inside it at the time. Neither the man, the woman or
bystanders reported injuries.
Price fled the scene on U.S. 59 toward Nacogdoches.
Around 9:20 p.m., Price called dispatch and agreed to meet
with officers to discuss the incident. He did so a short time later in a nearby
business parking lot off Timberland Drive and was taken into custody.
Charges are pending and the incident remains under
