A 47 year old man Stephen Scott Lowe after a quarrel with his wife decided to take a drive with his Mitsubishi Outlander SUV in the Augusta Mall. Apparently he was under the influence of probably alcohol.

He drove his SUV straight through the building's glass doors. .Surveillance video shows the driver ramming his vehicle into the mall's entrance and then casually taking a drive around several stores, as well as the food court. When he drove out the Mall, he was stopped, searched and took a swing at the Richmond County deputies and fought with them.
He was quite pissed at the officer’s ad try to run away but in the end he was subdued after pepper sprayed, handcuffed and arrested.

In the other incident (in Dec 06), a suicidal man drove into the Altamonte Mall in Seminole County, crashed through a second-floor entrance slamming into a perfume store kiosk and falling to the floor below near the escalator. The driver didn't hit anybody and was trying to hurt himself, a suicide attempt.

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. -- A 19-year-old man attempted to commit suicide Monday night by intentionally ramming his car through the front doors of the Altamonte Mall in Seminole County Monday night, driving toward a food court area and then crashing while speeding down an escalator, police told Local 6 News.

Police said Adam Soloman Kahim, of Longwood, Fla., was in serious condition after being extricated from his red Mitsubishi and transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center.

The person apparently drove through the entrance here in between Dillards and Macy's," Seminole County fire-rescue spokesman Alan Harris said.

ABOVE: He crashed through the Perfume Kiosk (where his girlfriend was working) and (BELOW) the car fell one floor below

"He went all the way down toward the food court area but didn't make it to the food court because, of course, the escalators there.

It fell to the first floor, and the vehicle was on its side. Luckily, we had a special operations team that happens to have a fire station right next to the mall."

Kahin had to be cut out of his car, and police said he may have been targeting a mall employee, possibly a woman who worked at the perfume kiosk. She had already gone home for the night. "The whole perfume case was shattered, and the car came in," said witness Diva Jefferson. "And the car fell down and nosedived into the escalator and then fell right down on the floor and flipped over." Court records show Kahin was ordered to have an involuntary psychiatric exam in 2002. He is being held now for psychiatric evaluation.

There were no other injuries, but the mall suffered approximately $100,000 in damages, including $5,000 in damages to Ero's Perfume. The mall was closed at the time of the incident."If this had been two hours earlier, full of Christmas shoppers and other holiday shoppers, it could have been very catastrophic," Harris said. The Altamonte Mall opened Tuesday for regular business hours from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. The second-level food-court mall entrance will remain closed until further notice.
