CITRUS HEIGHTS-

Christopher Myer and his dog Mary Jane are bruised and bloody, but alive after being hit by a car and pushed through a plate glass window Sunday night in Citrus Heights.

“It could have cost my friend’s life, my dog’s life,” Christopher Myer told FOX40 Monday afternoon.

The attack happened in the parking lot of a strip mall in 7900 block of Auburn Boulevard around 9 p.m. Sunday.

“This car drove in, made a u-turn, came back around the circle and came back in,” witness Luis Cardenas told FOX40.

Citrus Heights detectives say 47-year-old Anthony Robinson was driving and tried to run over Myer, his dog and friend Mikey in retribution for a fight Myer and his wife had at the Dairy Queen earlier Sunday.

Witnesses say the SUV was doing 25 to 30 miles an hour in the parking lot when it hit.

Robinson and his SUV were found near his home in North Highlands a short time later.

Myer, his friend and his dog should all be fine, though stunned.

“The human life should be worth at least something, instead of being ran over like I’m garbage,” Myer said.

CITRUS HEIGHTS–

A North Highlands man is under arrest for allegedly driving his car into two people Sunday night, Citrus Heights Police say.

Officers responded to a business near Auburn Boulevard and Cripple Creek Road just after 9 p.m. after getting a report of two people hit by a car.

Once at the scene, witnesses told police that the crash managed to send the people through the glass window of a business. One of the people hit had to be sent to the hospital. The suspect car had already left the scene.

Investigators later found that hit-and-run stemmed from an alleged argument the driver’s wife had with a co-worker. Apparently the wife called her husband, who then decided to confront the co-worker. Finding the co-worker at the business, the husband then rammed his car into the person – also hitting a man unrelated to the argument.

Police later caught up to and arrested the driver, identified as 47-year-old Anthony Robinson. He was arrested at this North Highlands home, the SUV used in the assault found nearby.

Robinson now faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon. He was also apparently driving with a suspended/revoked license.
