EASTLAKE -- Man kicked out of a Vine Street bar crashes his car near Walmart, then is arrested in Walmart bathroom.

Just before 2 a.m. Saturday, police were called to Walmart for a red vehicle that had struck a handicapped pole, then drove off towards the south side of the building.

While enroute, officers were told of a fight occurring behind the Captain's Club. At the Captain's Club, a man had been kicked out of the bar for allegedly bringing alcohol into the bar and smoking in the ladies room.

After he was ejected, he broke out the manager's car window, then drove off to Walmart where he struck the pole.

The bloody man was located inside Walmart's men's room, bandaging his injuries with bandages he had just purchased at Walmart.

Russel Wilson, 31, of Eastlake, was arrested for OVI and criminal damage. He was taken to the police station, processed and released on a $3,500 bond to a sober family member due to the nature of his injuries and his refusal to get treatment.

He is scheduled to be arraigned at 7:45 a.m. Tuesday.
