BRISTOL - A city man has been charged with intentionally hitting a vehicle that belongs to a man who is dating his ex-wife.
Omar Segura, 38, of 757 Lake Ave., driving a 2007 Toyota Camry, allegedly crashed into a 2006 Lexus on Oct. 4, at about 6:40 p.m., in the Creative Cutz parking lot, located at 296 Middle St., according to the arrest warrant. Police said he struck the driver’s side door, causing somewhere between $1,500 to $2,000 worth of damage.
The owner of the vehicle found the damage when he got out of work. He reported it the next day. The crash was caught on video surveillance.
According to the warrant, the complainant is dating Segura’s ex-wife. He told police the woman had tried to get a restraining order against Segura, but that it was denied. The complainant said Segura has threatened her in the past, the warrant said.
On Oct. 6, police went to Segura’s home and noted that his vehicle had damage consistent with the hit-and-run and some black paint transfer, according to the warrant. Hours later that day, Segura called police and said someone crashed into his car at his home and left, the warrant said.
According to the warrant, Segura, while speaking to police, admitted that he “swiped” a Lexus on Oct. 4 in a parking lot on Middle Street. During the conversation, police wrote in the warrant, he “continued to bring up the fact that he was married for 10 years and now there’s another guy dating his ex-wife.”
Segura was arrested Wednesday on charges of evading responsibility, operating without a license, evading responsibility, falsely reporting an incident, no insurance and second-degree false statement. He is free on $2,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in Bristol Superior Court on March 25.
