Brentwood, MO (KSDK) - Prosecutors in St. Louis County have charged a local man with two counts of felony assault and two counts of felony armed criminal action after police say he ran over a Jimmy John's employee because his order was wrong.
Police say 19-year-old William Hampel placed an order at the Jimmy John's store in the 1200 block of Strassner drive on July 2nd.
When the driver delivered the order, Hampel claims he received the wrong sandwich. The employee explained the policy, that they would refund the money or give him a new sandwich, but Hampel refused to give back the order. The driver left.
Police say around 12:10am, Hampel returned to the Jimmy John's and caused a disturbance inside the store. Court documents say that Hampel cursed and threatened the employees and then grabbed a large bag of trash from outside the business and tossed it inside. An employee contacted police, and she and another employee followed the suspect out of the store to try and get his license number.
That is when police say Hampel drove at one of the employees and hit her, causing serious physical injuries. A second employee was injured while diving out of the way to avoid Hampel's vehicle.
Hampel is not in police custody, but does have a warrant out for his arrest.
