Hit and Run Suspect who fled the scene...

Recommended Posts

...was found hours later beaten and tied to a phone pole.



He was arrested on charges including attempted murder, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office said. The initial incident occurred around 4:30 p.m. on Friday in Rancho Calaveras, a community 25 miles northeast of Stockton. Deputies arriving to investigate a report that a pedestrian had been hit were told that a man identified as Thomas Bechtold had gotten in an argument with James Leslie. Bechtold reportedly struck Leslie with his car, knocking the man unconscious, and then fled. At 7:30 p.m., deputies had not located Bechtold. They then got a report that he was back at the intersection where the assault had occurred, in a semi-rural neighborhood in the Gold Country foothills. They found him bruised and scraped, with his hands tied behind his back, and tethered to a telephone pole.


So... Spiderman?
