FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The man accused of killing a motorcycle rider during an incident in central Fresno earlier this month has been arrested, police say.

Authorities announced the arrest of 26-year-old Nate Arrington on Wednesday.

Detectives say 44-year-old Kair Saephan had stolen a motorcycle from Arrington on February 7.

Police say Arrington chased Saephan in a car near Shields Avenue and Fresno Street. Witnesses reported Arrington was armed with a gun.

Moments later, police say Arrington rammed his car into the bike, causing Saephan to fall onto the street.

Saephan was taken to Community Regional Medical Center, where he later died.
