Las Vegas man jailed after car driven into Henderson church; thousands of dollars damage

A Las Vegas man is behind bars after police say he became so enraged at being turned away from speaking with a pastor that he plowed his car through an entrance and down the hall of a large Henderson church.

Kevin Wilson was being held Thursday on $8,000 bail at the Henderson city jail pending a court appearance on felony burglary and destruction of property charges.

Henderson police say the 51-year-old Wilson got out of his Kia Spectra, smashed furniture and knocked holes in the walls at Central Christian Church before police arrested him about 5 a.m. Wednesday.

Police spokesman Keith Paul says a city building inspector later determined the church building remained structurally sound.
