A 23-year-old man kicked out of an Archibald Street bar is believed to have gone on a damage spree with his car, injuring four pedestrians, a taxi, and city equipment.

No one suffered serious injuries. The incident happened outside Teasers Burlesque Palace at Archibald and Marion Avenue.

Const. Jason Michalyshen said the man was thrown out of the bar just before 1 a.m. Police believe he rammed his car into a taxi, drove around the block returning to hit the taxi again --- which in turn struck the cabbie — then did another lap of the block, returning to strike three pedestrians.

Bystanders caught the suspect as he tried to flee on foot, and held him for police.

Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 204-986-6271.
