5/25/2015, evening. This will be most likely a so-called “non-traffic” crash because it appears to have begun in the private parking lot — so these injuries don’t “count”. Several serious, including one in critical condition with a head injury, and another with a partially severed leg. All pedestrians who were waiting outside for a table when an SUV driver somehow jumped the sidewalk and rammed into them while parking. Glendale police say they are investigating impairment and a driver’s surgical boot for possible causes.

Arrest and aftermath
The charge is §13-1204A2 (F3) AGG ASLT-DEADLY WPN/DANG INST. This would presumably have to sentenced as a “dangerous” offense meaning a conviction would have to mean significant prison time.
Motions by the state indicate allegations of previous felony convictions (possibly out-of-state?) There is another case pending against defendant in MCSC as noted below —
STATE’S ALLEGATION OF PRIOR FELONY CONVICTION PURSUANT TO A.R.S. § 13-703 or A.R.S. § 13-704
NOTE: STATE’S ALLEGATION OF AGGRAVATING CIRCUMSTANCES
NOTE: STATE’S ALLEGATION OF MULTIPLE OFFENSES NOT COMMITTED ON THE SAME OCCASION PURSUANT TO A.R.S. § 13-703 OR A.R.S. § 13-704
NOTE: STATE’S ALLEGATION OF HISTORICAL PRIORS
NOTE: STATE’S ALLEGATION OF HISTORICAL PRIOR CONVICTIONS UPON CONVICTION IN A CURRENTLY PENDING CASE
NOTE: STATE’S ALLEGATION OF FELONY COMMITTED WHILE ON RELEASE/ ENHANCED SENTENCING PURSUANT TO A.R.S § 13-708(D)
There’s a 2014 case still pending (as of June 2016) CR-2014130769 for Impersonating a Peace Officer, F6 ( the least serious class of felony).
