Yesterday morning a man drove into a Quad City women's clinic and set his car on fire. Police say it was apparently an act of protest against abortion. Police say David McMenemy from Michigan drove his car into the Edgerton Women's Care Center then doused the lobby with gasoline, lit a match and walked away.

This morning Edgerton employees are trying to pick up the pieces after the crash. Crews spent yesterday cleaning up the clinic. There was extensive water damage and it will take a couple of days to get things back together.

Employees at Edgerton tell us the clinic will not be open until next week but will have temporary sites both at Genesis East and other locations around Davenport. Until then employees are trying to come to terms with the incident and are wondering why this happened.

Tom Fedje, Edgerton Women's Clinic,"What I'd really like to do is have the opportunity to sit down and visit with this person and let him know how much he inconvenienced hundreds of pregnant women for obstetrical care. I'd like to let him know....I'd like to let him know hundreds of kids who need immunizations." Edgerton Clinic President Tom Fedje asked us who would do this?

From what we know David McMenemy is 45-years old and from Rochester Hills, Michigan. We searched court records and were not able to find any criminal history or his name in connection with anti-abortion causes.

Ironically, Edgerton is not an abortion clinic. This morning McMenemy is being held in the Scott County Jail on one count of arson.
