Assault with vehicle
Submitted By Officer Trish Young
On May 8, 2011 at about 10:10 a.m., the Milpitas Police Department received a call of a hit and run accident involving two vehicles. The victim reported the suspect was upset because he thought the victim had deliberately cut him off while driving on the roadway. The suspect pulled in front of the victim's vehicle and came to a stop, then put his vehicle in reverse and backed into the victim's vehicle causing minor damage, then fled the scene. No injuries were reported.
Milpitas Police Department detectives conducted a follow up investigation of the Texas license plate number provided by the victim and detectives identified Alan Meyer as the driver of the vehicle during the assault. On May 19, 2011, Meyer was arrested by Milpitas detectives for assault with a deadly weapon and booked into the Santa Clara County jail.
