Sacramento police arrested a man for assault with a deadly weapon and felony DUI after they say he intentionally drove his car into one bicyclist, and then accidentally hit two others.

On Saturday night, a police officer stopped a driver who was speeding in the opposite direction of traffic on 21st Street. The officer learned the driver was previously arguing with a bicyclist, and the biker slashed one of his tires.

Police say the driver, 31-year-old Wesley Tran, then changed the tire, looked for the bicyclist, found him and hit him with his car.

Tran then drove off in a hurry, lost control of his car, and hit 2 other bicyclists at the intersection of 20th and L Street, according to officers. The first biker hurt his head. Of the other two bikers, one did not get hurt and the other was slightly hurt.

Greg Cotta filed this report.
