ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) - Elyria Police say they arrested 24-year-old Zachary M. Lee after he tried to run down a group of bicyclists on Monday evening.

According to police, officers received a call around 7:30 p.m. Monday for the report of the group of three male cyclists struck by a van along 9th Street in Elyria. The bikers are aged 20, 18, and 14 years of age. They told police that Lee tried running them over.

Police obtained surveillance video from a neighbor that shows Lee in a blue Dodge Caravan driving close enough to brush one of the cyclist. The biker was treated for a minor injury. Lee then drove directly at the 20-year-old cyclist, over a curb, and ran over his foot.

Lee was arrested and charged with felonious assault.
