Police are investigating a 15-year-old's report that a driver deliberately hit him while he was skateboarding July 28, Lt. Jason Kravetz said.
The skateboarder said he and a 13-year-old companion, both from Laguna Beach, were on Temple Hills Drive between Brooks and Oak streets when they saw a vehicle approaching them. The 15-year-old said they motioned for driver to pass them.
Instead, the driver sped up and aimed at him, the teenager alleged, knocking him to the ground against a wall.
Kravetz said the skateboarder told police that the driver then jumped out of his vehicle and accused the boys of flipping him off and then called them a menace to society.
