A 34-year-old man was arrested Tuesday in connection with driving a car that had been reported stolen from a rental company.

Patrol officers on Tuesday saw a car weaving and began following it as a possible DUI case, police said. Officers then checked the license plate number on the vehicle and found it matched a car reported stolen from Hertz on Feb. 27.

Officers pulled the man over and arrested him on suspicion of stealing a car and driving without a license.

A 38-year-old woman awoke to the sound of screeching tires at 6 a.m. Tuesday, police said. She looked out her window and saw a red truck roaring through her subdivision, police said.

The woman drove to the security gate to report the matter. As she spoke with the security guard, the man who had been driving the truck walked by and apparently overheard the conversation, police said.

When the woman got back into her car, the driver of the truck allegedly ran up to her car, reached inside and punched her. Security guards pulled the man off the woman and called police.

The man was arrested on suspicion of breaking into a car, police said.
