Los Angeles attorney Walter Karabian, a former majority leader of the state Assembly, was arrested Saturday afternoon after he allegedly ran over a parking attendant before the USC football game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, authorities said.

Karabian, 71, was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after his 12:30 p.m. arrest.

He posted $30,000 bail and was released Saturday evening, according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

Public safety officers in Exposition Park, who made the arrest, did not release details of the incident or the condition of the attendant.

Karabian is a USC graduate who was elected to several terms in the state Legislature in the 1960s and early 1970s.
