LOS ANGELES, Calif.--The man suspected of crashing a BMW into two men standing in front of a parked Mini-Cooper--causing leg injuries that required amputations--was behind bars this morning awaiting charges, police said.
Terrence Conrad Meeks, 40, was booked on suspicion of attempted murder, with bail set at $500,000.
It happened about 3:30 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of Sam's Hof Brau strip club, at Olympic Boulevard and McGarry Street in Central City, according to Lt. Lee McMillion of the Los Angeles Police Department.
The men were taken to a hospital where doctors told officers one man would have both legs amputated above the knees and one man would have his right leg amputated above the knee, the lieutenant said.
Meeks "rammed his vehicle into the victims with malicious intent," McMillion said, alleging Meeks drove his BMW into the men with such force that the Mini-Cooper "came to rest against a building several feet away."
