A man and woman were in in a domestic argument in the South Coast Plaza parking lot at around 8:30 p.m. yesterday when the man got into a vehicle and drove northbound on Bristol Street, where he struck three vehicles near MacArthur Boulevard, said Sgt. Carol Salvatierra of the Santa Ana Police Department, according to the O.C. Register.

The suspect was later identified, by the SAPD, as 19-year-old Ricardo Navarro Tolento, of Santa Ana.

The suspect then drove south on Bristol Street and he hit more vehicles in Costa Mesa, according to Costa Mesa Police Lt. Ed Everett.
