FONTANA – A Rialto man was arrested after a traffic stop led to him hitting the officer and his motorcycle on Tuesday afternoon. At around 2:45 p.m. a motorcycle police officer from the Fontana Unified School District Police Department attempted to stop a silver Chevy Camaro near Foothill Boulevard and Mango Avenue.
