Evicted Man Hits Landlord With a Car, Deputy Says

The property owner was not seriously injured. The deputy said John Davit ignored warnings to stay away from his former residence.

A St. Charles County man hit his former landlord with a car outside his former residence Monday, a St. Charles County Sheriff’s deputy said.

John R. Davit, 66, was charged Tuesday with first-degree trespassing and third-degree assault.

A St. Charles County Sheriff's deputy said Davit had been recently evicted from his residence in the first block of Jackson Place in St. Charles County near First Capitol and Highway 364. The deputy said Davit was warned by the property owner and law enforcement to stay off the property.

However, Davit has returned to the property several times and ignored requests to leave, according to the report. On Monday, Davit drove his car directly at the property owner, hitting him in the left leg and knee with the vehicle’s front bumper, the deputy said.

Bond for Davit was set at $20,000, cash only.
