The security guard told police he tried hailing a ride for Poland, who appeared to be intoxicated.

But Poland didn't cooperate with the security guard and jumped in his car, according to police records. Poland allegedly hit another car while he was backing out before accelerating toward the security guard, who had to jump out of the way to avoid getting hit, the arrest affidavit states.

Poland was not at the scene when police arrived.

His bail was set at $40,000, jail records showed.
