Police: Patron at Dilworth bar drives truck into building

A patron at Ed’s Tavern in Dilworth drove his truck into the front of the building early Monday after bartenders cut him off around 2 a.m., Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Capt. J.D. Thomas said.

“We’re thinking he did it intentionally, but we really won’t know until we talk to him,” Thomas said, noting that no one has been arrested in the case.

Thomas said no one was injured in the incident. The Charlotte Fire Department did not deem the building unsafe to enter because there was no substantial structural damage, he added.

“There was some damage, but it didn’t hit any support structures,” Thomas said.
