WATCH: Man Who Intentionally Crashed into Walmart Gets No Jail Time

SAN ANGELO, TX – The man who intentionally crashed his truck into the Walmart on Sherwood Way will serve no jail time.

According to court documents, on Jun. 23, Caleb Wilson, 22, of Eldorado, took a plea deal in which he admitted to crashing through the front entrance at the Walmart at 5501 Sherwood Way.

During the initial indictment, Wilson was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of criminal mischief greater than $2,500 but less than $30,000. 

In the deal the DA agreed to drop the aggravated assault charges in return for a guilty plea for the criminal mischief charge.

In return for the guilty plea Wilson will be on deferred adjudication probation for five years and will have to pay $3,500 in restitution. Other stipulations in his probation will be constant drug tests, he must stay in Tom Green County, and attend classes including an English reading course where to finish he must obtain education on a sixth grade level.

The entire court process took around three years to complete.
