Man Crashes Truck into Former Employer's Home

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- An 82-year-old man is picking up the pieces after NLR police say his former employee crashed his truck into his home earlier this week.
"I just couldn't believe he had done what he done."

Billy Eaton has lived at his home on Goshen Street for 27 years. "I didn't know what happened until I pulled up around there."

He was shocked when he came home to find out a truck had crashed into his home. "I started asking the policeman what happened."

Sitting on his lawn - bricks and debris."He knocked the window out, ran the truck into the building. I just kind of sat down and didn't say nothing." NLR police say 43-year old Charles Timothy Standridge - was seen driving in donuts on the front lawn - before impaling Eatons home.

Standridge was arrested on the scene - telling police he didn't want to speak because he wasn't "thinking right." "He was nice when I first met him. He came around helped me with a lot of work he was as nice as can be."

Eaton says Standridge has worked for him building homes for the past year. He says he's traumatized, knowing someone he trusted would try and hurt him. "When I came up and seen that I just couldn't take no more. I never thought anything like this would have ever happened in my life."

Standridge faces charges of first degree criminal mischief. He's expected back in court on November 29th.
