Florida Man Drives SUV into Ex-Wife’s Home

Florida man Nisan Ortega is in the Orange County Jail after he rammed his SUV into the home of his ex-wife Ingrid Alas while it was occupied by a total of 7 people including little children.

Deputies say Ortega arrived at the home and was intoxicated. He banged on the door of the home around 2 a.m. Monday morning looking for his ex-wife Ingrid Alas.

Alas said Ortega tried to open the door and force his way in. When they didn’t let him in, Alas said Ortega went back to his car. She grabbed their two children and her cousin’s children and ran outside of the home.

Deputies said Ortega then rammed his car into the back of a car in the driveway before ramming it directly into the home. If someone would have been on the other side of that wall, he would have killed them, Alas said.

The family forced Ortega out of the home months ago after they say he became more violent and started drinking. According to deputies, Ortega had been drinking the morning of the incident.

Ortega’s son, 15-year-old Jonathan, said the family had grown accustomed to his violent behavior. He said he feels bad for his mother who often cries. The family has been living in the United States for 3 years now after leaving Honduras. The family says they will stay with friends, and they have already started fixing the damaged wall and plan to continue living in the rental home after repairs are done.

The seven people inside the small south Apopka home made it out safely but now the family is left dealing with the trauma of what happened and where they go from here.

WESH news anchor Luana Munoz has contacted the Red Cross to see if they can help the family.

Ortega was transported to the Orange County Jail were he’s being held without bond charged with seven counts of attempted felony murder and burglary of a dwelling with a motor vehicle.
