At about 4:09 pm Monday afternoon, the Turlock Police Department was dispatched to a reported weapon offense in progress in the 800 block of Julian Street, Turlock, after a man had been spotted in the middle of the roadway next to two vehicles holding a small black revolver.
As officers arrived on scene, they observed a black BMW sedan being driven by who was later identified as Michael Garcia, 20, of Turlock, obviously attempting to strike who was later identified as Anthony Chaney, 23, of Turlock, the man who allegedly had the revolver.
Garcia was eventually able to strike Chaney with his vehicle. Chaney landed on Garcia’s windshield and held on as Garcia fled eastbound on Julian Street.
Officers conducted a high risk stop near the intersection of Grant Avenue and Chestnut Street where they detained both Garcia and Chaney for further investigation.
The investigation revealed that the incident was the result of a neighborhood feud and that Chaney had also assaulted an elderly victim and vandalized a vehicle.
The revolver that Chaney was alleged to have was never located.
Chaney suffered minor injuries as a result of being struck by Garcia’s vehicle, however, he refused to be transported to the hospital.
Both Garcia and Chaney were arrested and booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center, Garcia on charges of attempted murder and Chaney on charges of assault and vandalism.
