Patrick Schwarzenegger's Car Rammed During Odd Chase
Police are looking for a man who rammed a car belonging to Patrick Schwarzenegger, the 21-year-old son of Arnold and Maria.It sounds like an odd incident: it started when Schwarzenegger was on his way to meet his girlfriend Miley Cyrus for lunch. A man drove up, dumped a water bottle on Schwarzenegger's car and then bolted, according to TMZ.
Schwarzenegger tried to chase the man down in his car. At one point during the chase, the man flipped his car around and rammed into Schwarzenegger.
The incident happened on Feb. 10 around 11 a.m. in Valley Village at the intersection of Whitsett Avenue and Riverside Drive, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The damage to Schwarzenegger's car was minimal, and he wasn't hurt. He called police when he arrived at the restaurant. Police have no clue what the motive for the incident might be and the suspect hasn't been caught, but they told the Times they're treating the investigation as felony assault with a deadly weapon.
