Sioux Falls Man Rams House With Pickup

July 27, 2010, 5:49 PM by Don Jorgensen

Sioux Falls Man Rams House With Pickup
SIOUX FALLS, SD - A Sioux Falls man is in jail facing several charges after repeatedly ramming his vehicle into the front of a house.

It happened in the 1100 block of North Main at 5 o'clock Tuesday morning, a neighborhood police say has had its share of problems before and now the landlord wants the people who were renting from her out of the house.

Tire tracks lead to a path of destruction at this house in northern Sioux Falls. Police say Sonny Bear Thunder had gotten into an argument with his girlfriend and tried to drive his pickup into the home she was staying in.

The commotion woke up neighbors. 

"My dogs were barking and my daughter come downstairs saying, 'Mom, somebody is hitting that house out there,'" Dianna Cauthon said 

Cauthon, who lives nearby, called 911. 

"It was pretty loud.  I think he did it three times that I seen and he also hit a parked car out here," Cauthon said.

The landlord says she tries to keep the place nice and then something like this happens. 

"It makes me sad to see this because there could be somebody who really needs this and would take care of it and it's been abused," landlord Carol Anderson said.

Anderson says she can't believe someone would purposely ram a house over an argument. 

"I don't understand aggression; I've never been a violent person. I absolutely feel this is a sad deal because it involves people; the house we can fix it up," Anderson said. 

"We always have problems with these people; she just can't get decent renters here," Cauthon said.

That's why Anderson says she's left with no choice but to evict these renters. 

"I told him to grab his stuff and get out because I'm gong to board up the house.  The windows are broke; the house is damaged.  We do need to take care and get it back into shape," Anderson said.

Bear Thunder is facing a long list of charges, including felony intentional damage to property, aggravated assault and DUI.
