A Colorado Springs man was arrested Monday after deliberately striking a bicyclist with his Dodge van, police said.
Timothy Hombs was driving his Dodge Caravan around 2:15 p.m. near Palmer Park Boulevard and Wooten Road when he spotted an “unknown party” riding on what he thought his son’s stolen bike,” according to the Colorado Springs Police Department crime blotter.
Hombs “intentionally” struck the bicyclist with his van to stop it, got out of his vehicle and approached the person he believed to be a bike thief.
The bike, however, wasn’t his son’s, the blotter said.
No word yet if Hombs is related to Doug Bruce.
