Police say 33-year-old Miguel Martinez Jr. was intoxicated when he crashed a 2002 Ford Expedition into an apartment in the 1300 block of Rigsby Road early Monday morning.

But as of Monday afternoon, he's not facing any charges, police said.

When police arrived at the scene of the crash, which occurred around 1:15 a.m., he was bleeding from the back of his head and his upper body was covered in blood.

And police say he's a victim.

According to a police report, Martinez got into an argument with neighbors, then several men used a steel pipe to hit him on both knees and in the back of the head.

Martinez told police that's the last thing he remembers. He said he doesn't remember getting into the SUV or crashing it.

A 38-year-old woman was also hit on the right leg with a steel pipe and taken to the hospital.

Police are still investigating the assault.

Also as of Monday afternoon, none of Martinez's alleged attackers had been charged.
