SALT LAKE CITY — Police say they’ve arrested a Utah driver accused of killing a man in a hit and run after the victim confronted him about the way he was treating a dog.
West Valley City police had been searching for 40-year-old Aaron Hosman for three days when he was spotted by a West Jordan officer and arrested without incident Saturday. He was booked on suspicion of murder and obstruction of justice.
Police say 47-year-old victim Jeremy Hardman got out of his car and approached Hosman when he saw him punching a dog on a street corner on Wednesday.
Police say Hosman flipped a U-turn and struck Hardman as the victim walked back to his own car following the confrontation.
No attorney was immediately listed for Hosman in court records.
