A Newport Beach man was arrested after allegedly attacking two men trying to repossess his car, police told the Daily Pilot.

The repo men were trying to repossess a late-model Chevy Impala when Joshua Roy Delbert hit one of them with a cane then jumped in the car and drove off, driving over the other man's leg before slamming into a pole, police said.    

Delbert, 32, was arrested Monday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
