Angry driver allegedly runs down pedestrian in Redondo Beach
Jared Polk, 25, was arrested in Redondo Beach on Sunday on charges of felony hit-and-run and assault with a deadly weapon.
Polk had screeched to a stop at a Hermosa Beach crosswalk narrowly missing two pedestrians with his Honda Element.
One of them threw up his arms and yelled at Polk, said Det. Mick Gaglia of the Hermosa Beach Police Department.
Polk “backed up … and gunned it,” Gaglia said.
Polk allegedly hit the pedestrian, who rolled up over the car and onto the pavement. Polk then drove off.
Hermosa Beach police tracked him down and arrested him in Redondo Beach.
