A suspect involved in the vehicular assault of a Fremont (Calif.) Police officer was arrested Monday on a BART train in Hayward, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
The arrested man apparently knows a suspect who earlier in the day had deliberately rammed Fremont PD motor officer Patrick Brower with a stolen delivery van.
Brower, a 10-year veteran of the department, had spotted the van and was parked in a center divider on his bike when the driver accelerated toward the officer, striking him and dragging him across two lanes of traffic before striking a street light. Brower was pinned under the van, reports SFGate.com.
