He is being held on a $25,000 bond.
Manuel G. Trevino, 47, was identified by the Dallas County medical examiner's office.
Police said Trevino was killed Monday in collision between his motorcycle and the pickup truck driven by Escobedo. Trevino died 12 days away from his 48th birthday, according to records.
The incident was reported at 4:42 p.m. near the intersection of Munger Boulevard and Columbia Avenue, about a mile north of Fair Park, police said.
Trevino was riding a motorcycle east on Columbia when a gray Chevrolet S-10 pickup struck him, said Lt. Vernon Hale, police spokesman.
Hale said the driver of the pickup, later identified as Escobedo, "attempted to flee the scene and was apprehended by several good Samaritans 4-5 blocks away."
"The driver," he added, "was held by citizens until police arrived."
