COSTA MESA — A Costa Mesa man was in critical condition Thursday after police accused him of attempted murder for allegedly driving his truck into a police cruiser carrying his two sons.
About midnight Wednesday, police received a call from Donald Greene's wife saying that he had just hit their 17-year-old son. En route to the scene, police got call from the teenager, who told dispatchers his father had a gun and had just fired it in their garage.
Police said Greene, 49, attacked his teenage son and his 28-year-old son.
Officers rushing to the scene learned Greene had driven off in a red Toyota Tacoma pickup and started cordoning off the area while other officers continued on to the home.
