LAHAINA – Police arrested a driver who allegedly hit a moped rider after the two argued in the driveway of a Lahaina residence Friday night.

The incident was reported after 10 p.m. on Kaakepa Street, said Lt. Chad Viela of the Lahaina Criminal Investigation Division.

He said the car was running in the driveway, with the moped rider in front of the car, when the car driver stepped on the gas pedal to move the car forward to hit the moped. The moped rider suffered a possibly fractured wrist, Viela said.

The injured man was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center, where he was treated and released.

Police arrested the car driver, who was identified as Edgar Velasco, 21, of Lahaina. His bail was set at $7,050 on charges of first-degree criminal property damage, second-degree assault, driving without a license, not having insurance, failure to render aid and endangering the welfare of a minor.

A juvenile was in the car with Velasco during the incident, Viela said.

Velasco also was being held on a federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer, Viela said.
