REDLANDS (CBSLA.com) — A 26-year-old Redlands man faced assault charges Monday after his arrest on reports that he had attempted to hit bicyclists with his car.
Police responded several times over the weekend to reports that a driver in a gray two-door Honda Civic had attempted to strike cyclists along Sunset Drive, causing some of them to run off the road, according to Redlands Police.
On Sunday, July 21, police received two calls, including one in which the driver reportedly crossed into the opposing eastbound traffic lane and drove toward the cyclist, running him off the road, police said.
At about 3:30 p.m. Sunday, police located and stopped the vehicle and arrested the driver, Christopher John McDonald.
McDonald was arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and transported to West Valley Detention Center.
Bail was set at $50,000.
