SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Police say they suspect a man had been using drugs when he rammed his car through the front of a Wal-Mart and began assaulting customers, injuring four people in California.

San Jose police Officer Albert Morales said Monday that Haamid Ade Zaid of Seaside is being held without bail at the Santa Clara County Jail for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon, hit and run, being under the influence of drugs, and resisting arrest.

The 33-year-old Zaid was arrested after an Oldsmobile Cutlass crashed through the San Jose storefront on Sunday and hit a beer display before stopping.

Police say the driver then got out of the car with a blunt object and began attacking people.

Police said no motive has been determined.
