SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio police have arrested a man who they say went too far to protect his fancy car.

He is accused of running over an 18-year-old man who reportedly bashed his car windows with a baseball bat.

Police found them around 2 Wednesday in the 400 block of W. Hermosa Boulevard.

Officers at the scene said the two men had been arguing earlier in the evening.

The car owner left the area but at some point later he returned to pick up some people he had left behind.

Police say that’s when the 18-year-old began bashing the car windows with a baseball bat. In return, they say, the car owner ran over that man.

The 18-year-old was stable when he was rushed to a hospital, police said.

The car owner was taken into custody and, most likely, will face charges, police said.
