A Shelter Cove man drives his vehicle into another man after an argument over marijuana.
The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office says this past Friday, Eric Jason Lively, 41 from Shelter Cove allegedly got into an argument with a 35 year old victim and his 20 year old girlfriend over a 2-year old marijuana debt.

The victim received minor injuries but refused medical when deputies offered to summon an ambulance. When law enforcement contacted Lively after the incident, he admitted having “bumped” the victim with his truck.
