Costa Mesa police said the truck driver was turning right onto 17th Street from Placentia Avenue shortly after noon on Saturday when the suspect in the Mercedes-Benz tried passing up the semi-truck on the right side.
The not-so-slick move didn't work.
Though the Mercedes-Benz sustained major damage after getting stuck between the big rig and the sidewalk, no injuries were reported, police said.
The suspect, identified as Brian Elder, was arrested for DUI.
