Disgruntled Man Tries to Run Over His Ex-Wife, Makes Huge Mistake

David Southwick, 45, of Cortlandville, NY has been arrested on assault and several other charges as he rammed his truck into parked vehicles in the parking lot at the Cortland County Courthouse on Monday.

He and his ex-wife were arguing as they left the courthouse. He then entered his 1999 white Ford flatbed pickup truck and allegedly tried to hit her as she walked away from him. Cortland Police Lt. Richard Troyer told Syracuse.com "He ran into 14 cars, did a lot of damage. He was a tad bit upset."

In addition, Cortland allegedly drove into the porch of a house that is divided into apartments next to the parking lot. Ronaldo Graham was sleeping inside the building and said, "I heard it and felt it."

Sommer Black, a probation officer for Cortland County, was in her office in the courthouse when she heard squealing tires outside in the parking lot. When she went outside, her SUV was totaled. Southwick's ex-wife was not injured, although a person who was in one of the hit cars suffered minor injuries in their arm and leg.

Southwick left around $19,000 in damages. Furthermore, he is facing charges including reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and criminal possession of a weapon.
