The victim reportedly suffered injuries to his face and torso but was able to drive himself to a local church where law enforcement was called. Paramedics then took him to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Malloy was arrested and booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of battery, assault with a deadly weapon, and a couple of warrants.
Police say their investigation into this incident is ongoing and they’re asking anyone with information this case to contact the Paso Robles Police Department at (805) 237-6464 or Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP.
