Pistol shooting neighbor detains drunk driver
June 10, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Spencer Nymann

A drunk driver was arrested for a hit-and-run accident after two Belmont neighbors fired a gun while chasing the criminal and detained him until police arrived Saturday night.

Spencer Nymann, a 25-year-old Belmont resident, was drunk when he hit a woman and her 5-year-old daughter who were driving at the intersection of Hiller Street and Wessex Way around 8 p.m. June 7, according to Belmont police.

A witness followed Nymann as he fled the scene in his truck through the Sterling Downs neighborhood before abandoning his car in the parking lot of a church, according to police.

Nymann was allegedly running through nearby backyards when two neighbors detained him outside a home on Oxford Way. One of the neighbors was armed with a pistol and apparently discharged it into the ground while chasing Nyman, according to police.

Nymann wasn’t injured and was taken to jail without incident and is charged with hit-and-run causing injury and DUI, according to police. The victims complained of pain but were checked out and released at the scene, according to police.
