A 50-year-old Bloomington man is in jail after an apparent domestic dispute Wednesday morning in which authorities say he used his vehicle as a weapon against his wife.

Ezequiel Torres Morales was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm. He was booked at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, with bail set at $50,000, jail records show.

The incident occurred about 3:45 a.m. as the victim was leaving for work. Morales drove his truck in front of her vehicle to get her to stop near Olive Street and Bloomington Avenue, a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department news release said.

Morales then got out of his truck, yelled at the victim and broke her windshield wipers, the release said. The victim drove away, but Morales caught up with her at Cedar Avenue and Valley Boulevard and rammed her vehicle from behind, the release said.

The victim then drove off again. Morales followed her onto the 10 Freeway and tried to ram her vehicle again, forcing her to pull over, the release said. Morales jumped out of his truck, approached the victim’s vehicle and pounded on the driver’s door window. The victim drove off and called 911.

Deputies found Morales at his residence and arrested him about 4 a.m., according to the release and jail records.

Sheriff’s officials asked anyone with information about the incident to call them at 909-356-6767.
