A dispute over a woman ended with one man driving his pickup into the path of a man on a motorcycle Monday morning in Sonora, police said.
The man driving the Honda motorcycle was wearing a helmet and suffered scrapes on his hands, arms and legs but declined medical treatment, according to Sonora police. Officials did not release his name, age or city of residence.
The pickup driver, Jesse Cal Rhodes, 26, of Sonora was not injured and was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, police said.
Sonora police Chief Mark Stinson said the dispute appeared to be centered around the motorcyclist's former girlfriend, who now is dating Rhodes. The crash occurred shortly before 10 a.m. near West Stockton Street at Bradford Street, police said.
Stinson said the motorcycle sustained major damage, and the pickup sustained minor scratches to its front bumper.
