23-year-old Angel Mendoza was arrested on June 3 after hitting another man with his vehicle multiple times, following an argument with on the north side, police said.
Detectives responded to the 300 block of East Pastime Road, and learned that an argument between the victim and suspect had broken out in an apartment and carried out into the street, said Sgt. Kimberly Bay, a Tucson Police Department spokeswoman.
Mendoza got into his vehicle, almost hitting the victim as he left the area, Bay said.
The victim stayed outside, yelling at him to leave, at which point the vehicle turned around and unsuccessfully attempted to hit the victim, Bay said.
Mendoza returned one more time, hitting the victim with his vehicle multiple times, before getting out and threatening the man with a hammer while he was on the ground, Bay said.
Mendoza left the scene, but was apprehended by police a short distance away. He was booked into the Pima County jail on three counts of aggravated assault with a dangerous instrument and one count of aggravated assault causing substantial injuries, Bay said.
The victim was transported to the hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
