4th suspect arrested in beating of Lyft driver in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A fourth suspect has been arrested in the beating of a Lyft driver on U.S. Highway 101 in San Francisco in March, California Highway Patrol officials announced Wednesday.

Quintrell Anderson, 25, was arrested on Monday and has been booked into the San Francisco County Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit a crime, assault, battery, and vandalism.

CHP officials say Anderson is the final suspect wanted in connection with the beating, which was all caught on video.

33-year-old Derwayne A. Johnson, 25-year-old Gabriel Rodriguez, and 19-year-old Jarrell E. Williams Jr. were arrested last Wednesday. All three have entered not guilty pleas to a number of felony charges.

The four suspects were allegedly part of a group of up to 15 dirt bikers involved in a “sideshow” on southbound Highway 101 near the Cesar Chavez Street exit on March 9.

The attack occurred after a Lyft driver tried to pass the riders. They allegedly boxed him in and began vandalizing his car, then beat him when he got out of his car.

One suspect ran over the victim’s leg with a dirt bike during the attack, breaking it badly, according to the CHP.

The suspects were tracked down with help from the public and from San Francisco police, who had previously encountered them allegedly riding motorcycles wildly on city highways and streets.

During the arrests, officers also found several firearms, a stolen dirt bike, money and a small amount of drugs, according to the CHP.
