NEW INFO: Marine Charged With DWI, Assault In Road Rage Case

A Marine Corps ammo tech is accused of ramming a vehicle multiple times and driving drunk in what deputies say was a case of severe road rage.

Investigations said Corporal Nicholas Greene of Jacksonville was behind the wheel around 10 p.m. Saturday night along Highway 17 in Pollocksville when he rear-ended Jeffrey Krueger's SUV.

Authorities say the 22-year-old Greene was in a Dodge Avenger going between 80 and 100 miles per hour. They say Krueger was in the vehicle with his wife and seven year old son.

The Krueger's said their vehicle's rear bumper was hit twenty times by the Marine's car.

Greene continued for roughly 8 miles, striking another car twice along the way, according to a deputy.

Officials also said Greene blew a .23 alcohol level at 1 o'clock Sunday morning. That is nearly three times the legal limit.

Greene was charged with a DWI, four counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, and traffic violations including speeding. His court date for all those charges has been set for September 12th.

Records indicate he bonded out of jail Sunday.

The Marine Corps says Greene is an ammo technician with the Marine Logistics Group at Camp Lejeune.
