Darryl Clayburn, of Joliet, plowed his car into the home of a neighbor whom he suspected of sleeping with his wife, police said.
Ruin my marriage? I'll ruin your house!
On Monday, the 31-year-old man got into an argument with his two neighbors, Scott Johnson and Lisa Norrgran, which is likely when he found out about an affair between Johnson and Clayburn's wife, said police.
To calm himself down, Clayburn reportedly took Xanax -- a potent sedative -- followed by alcohol.
But instead of relaxing, Clayburn got in his 2006 Dodge Charger and rammed it through the front door of Johnson and Norrgran's house at about 4 p.m., according to The Herald-News.
Clayburn told the arriving police that he didn't want to kill Johnson; he just wanted to hit him.
Fortunately, Johnson was uninjured. He had fled out the back door and hid in nearby bushes, police told Chicago Breaking News.
Clayburn was charged with criminal damage to property, aggravated assault, reckless conduct, and driving under the influence.
