Police in Eau Claire say the man who crashed his pick-up truck into the Regency Inn is now facing select charges.
Investigators say there’s no evidence that Sean Sambell was drunk when he drove his truck into a room at the Regency Monday night. But police say Sambell fought with officers and nurses when he was taken to the hospital. He was in court yesterday to answer charges of battery to a health care provider and battery or threats to police. Sambell is well known to Eau Claire County prosecutors; he has four open OWI cases from 2023 alone.
