A Napa man was arrested Monday following a disturbance inside a car that later crashed, according to police.
Shortly before 3:20 p.m., officers were called to the site of a wreck on westbound Old Sonoma Road near Jefferson Street, according to Lt. Chase Haag. The female driver was arguing with her husband, sitting in a passenger seat, when he grabbed and jerked the steering wheel, causing the vehicle to leave the roadway and strike a fire hydrant, Haag said.
