 What started as a late night bar fight, ended with one person in the hospital, and another in jail for running them over.

Officers responded to a bar in the 5700 block of Alameda for a fight early Saturday morning.

When they arrived, they found a fight going on between multiple people.

According to police and bystanders, one of the men fled the fight, getting into his car and backing over four or five people as he left.

Police followed him to the other side of town, where he was eventually stopped at a local mall.

A DWI specialist determined that he was intoxicated.

He was arrested for Aggravated Assault, DWI, and Evading in a Vehicle.

Only one of the people he hit was taken to the hospital, with non-life threatening injuries.

UPDATE: Police have identified the suspect, who has been booked for several charges. Read more here.
