March 30, 2011
Douglas Kaplan accidentally rear ended Armon Johnson on Broad Street near Tank Farm Road at about 4:30 p.m. Both men got out of their vehicles to discuss the accident.
After finding out Johnson had called police, Kaplan attempted to flee in Johnson’s car, police said.
Johnson, 48, wrestled with Kaplan who fought back. A witness, Joseph Zavala, 46, joined Johnson in successfully detaining the alleged carjacker until police arrived.
Police booked Kaplan into San Luis Obispo County Jail on suspicion of carjacking and assault with a deadly weapon.
