Man takes plea deal for hitting friend with cylinder, stealing car
August 19, 2014, 05:00 AM

A Pleasanton man who reportedly used a rusted metal cylinder he found on the ground to smack his friend before stealing his car in San Mateo pleaded no contest to felony assault with a deadly weapon in return for up to a year in jail.

Aaron Michael Hanna, 27, had been in custody on $150,00 bail but was released on his own recognizance after taking the plea deal. He will head to the DeLancy Street treatment program until his Oct. 8 sentencing hearing.

Hanna was riding in the victim’s black Honda Accord just before 3 p.m. March 2 when the vehicle began to overheat, prompting the victim to pull over at a gas station in the 800 block of North Delaware Street in San Mateo.

The two men, who hadn’t been friends for long, had shared a meal together before the car began to overheat, according to prosecutors.

While the victim, a 30-year-old San Bruno resident, was tending to his vehicle by looking under the hood, Hanna allegedly struck the victim with the cylinder, resulting in a glancing blow to the neck, according to prosecutors. The victim’s injuries were not life-threatening.

Hanna then took the victim’s Honda and drove away, police said.

Officers found Hanna and the vehicle more than two hours later in the area of San Bruno Avenue and Skyline Boulevard in San Bruno, police said.
