Police say 54-year-old Timothy Grant was riding his bike to work, wearing a helmet and with a red flashing light when he was hit by an on-coming car.  When officers responded to the area of Jefferson Road and Buckeye around 5:30 Saturday morning, the car involved was gone.

Witnesses say they saw Gonzalez get out of the car and run into the house.  Police tracked him down and arrested him.

He is currently being held in the St. Joseph County jail on $50,000 bond.
