    A man who suspected his wife of having an affair slammed his wife’s car into his neighbor’s house in Rancho Penasquitos Thursday afternoon, police said.

    The incident happened in the 14800 block of Penasquitos Court.

    According to SDPD officer Jeff Stewart, the driver was upset about his wife possibly having an affair with his next-door neighbor.

    “[He] was upset over marital issues. He had some issues with his neighbor and his wife possibly having a relationship,” said Stewart. “He suffers from Huntington’s Disease and was off his medication at the time.”

    Stewart said the crash caused some structural damage to the neighbor’s house, but nobody was injured.

    The driver was arrested at the scene and could now face felony vandalism charges, as well as charges for violating a restraining order, according to Stewart.

    The officer said the neighbors already had a restraining order against one another before this incident.

    No further information was released.
