The Spokane Valley Police Department announced this morning the arrest of a Greenacres man after he allegedly rammed a parked truck in the 14800 block of East Fourth around 2 a.m. A woman called police to report that a red Ford truck had hit her neighbor's Chevy truck once, then backed up and hit it again, pusing it into the street.
