MISSOULA, Mont. Columbia Falls police confirm a suspect is in custody after a car plowed through the Super One grocery in Columbia Falls Thursday evening.

The man is believed to be 40 to 50 years old. Investigators say they do not have a motive. Witnesses say they are amazed no one was injured.

Witnesses tell us they watched a white car drive up and down the aisles.

We have a crew on the scene and talking with witnesses who say they ran and tried to hide behind the bakery counter.

Stunning video shows widespread damage in the aftermath of the incident.

Looks like drugs. Lots and lots of drugs.




COLUMBIA FALLS UPDATE: 10:14 a.m. - Nov. 13

A man was taken into custody on Thursday after driving through a Columbia Falls grocery store before crashing his vehicle and fleeing on foot.

Columbia Falls Police Chief Clint Peters said a man in his 50s drove his vehicle, a 1995 Chevrolet Lumina, into Super 1 Foods around 5:50 p.m.

After coming in through the front doors, the man then drove down an aisle to the back of the store, before turning around and driving down another aisle. He then left through the front doors and crashed the vehicle across the highway.

Within minutes, Chief Peters said police were advised of a nude male running down a hallway of a nearby retirement home that was near the area where the Chevrolet Lumina was abandoned.

Peters said the nude male fled on foot but was eventually taken into custody near the Columbia Falls mini-storage area. Peters said a short investigation determined that the nude male was in fact the driver of the Chevrolet Lumina that had driven through Super One.

Peters said the man showed signs of drug impairment at the time of his arrest.

The suspect was transported to a local hospital for non-injury medical issues and will be transported to the Flathead County Detention Center when he is medically cleared.

1. A trump humper mad about the election results?

This is despicable. Two of my sons worked in grocery stores. I cannot imagine how the employees are feeling looking at this wanton destruction.

2. That picture looks like I just finished shopping on one of the electric scooters.

I usually do all right going up and down the aisles, but every once in awhile I wipe out a corner display. One time I sent cans of tomatoes rolling all over the place.

5. Do you really blame him,.... ?

Those little battery operated go carts by the front door for the elderly and disabled are never fully charged up. You go to use one and the battery dies before you have completed 1/2 your shopping trip around the store.

He had no alternative but to use his own vehicle to do his shopping in the store. It looked like he was driving a midsized Buick.
If he was driving a smaller car he might have done a lot less damage cruising up and down the aisles of the grocery store.

If the grocery stores added stop signs or traffic lights at the end of each aisle it might help with the automotive traffic flow in their stores. There might be far less damage too.
