A man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly threatening a co-worker with a knife, according to witnesses and the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies say Saul Garcia, 35, told a younger co-worker that he would seriously hurt him and send him to the hospital.

A driver for west-of-Tracy car auctioneers Adesa Golden Gate, Garcia is charged with assault with a deadly weapon and was booked at San Joaquin County Jail in French Camp.

Garcia’s manager Gary Mobley said that a woman employee told a 21-year-old co-worker that Garcia had said something offensive about her.

The younger employee decided to defend her and picked a fight with Garcia, Mobley said.

“It started with an argument between two employees inside of a van,” Mobley said. “And one guy decided to stick up for his female co-worker.”

Garcia pushed the other man out of the van and they rushed into the personnel office, where supervisors separated them and called the police.

Employees told sheriff’s deputies that the fight started while the employees were being shuttled to different parts of the car auction compound so they could drive cars to their buyers.
