A League City man was arrested Thursday and charged over hitting a bicyclist with a car last October.
The incident happened Oct. 2, 2017. A bicyclist called police to report being struck from behind while riding in the 2500 block of Webster Street in League City, according to a probable cause affidavit.
The bike was damaged, and the man suffered scrapes to his legs, according to the affidavit. The car drove away, according to the affidavit.
Two witnesses told police they saw a red Nissan swerve toward the bicyclist and push him off the road, according to the affidavit. One of the witnesses followed the Nissan, took a picture of its license plate and identified the trailer park where the car ultimately stopped, according to the affidavit.
Police went to the trailer park, found the car and spoke to its owner, who said his brother was driving the car, according to the affidavit.
The officers contacted the brother, who said he did not remember hitting anyone with the car, according to the affidavit. Officers told them there were photos of him and the man said he was "not going to argue the point and will accept responsibility," according to the affidavit.
The man said he would turn himself in if a warrant was issued for his arrest, according to the affidavit.
Angel Sanic, 38, was arrested on Thursday and charged with causing an accident involving personal injury. He was held on $5,000 bond, and had an immigration hold placed on him, according to jail records. He was still in custody on Friday afternoon.
