Dramatic moment driver slams into Christmas parade just weeks after Waukesha horror that killed six
A PERSON has been arrested after a minivan drove into a Christmas parade weeks after the deadly Waukesha crash.
No one was injured and the driver of the vehicle was quickly arrested after the incident. The driver has been identified as Tony Nix of Trafford, Alabama.
Nix has been charged with reckless endangerment and attempting to elude. He was released on bond Wednesday, according to jail records, after being booked into the Blount County Jail Tuesday night.
Records show that Nix was "flipping the bird" while driving past barricades. He allegedly refused to stop for police and "almost struck" law enforcement according to a complaint.
Hayden Police Chief James Chapman said that anyone who wants to make a police report for reckless endangerment should contact the Hayden Police Department.
"I am thankful that no one was injured by this person. The Hayden Police Department has arrested this subject and initiated criminal and traffic charges,"
The parade was posted on social media prior to the event.
Just a few weeks ago, an SUV was plowed into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, killing six people and injuring multiple others.
