Man runs over customer after fight at Antioch IHOP
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
A parolee faces several charges for trying to run over a man after an argument at an IHOP in Antioch Sunday.
Henry Fletcher Jr., 28, and his friend D. Holland, 26, were leaving the IHOP on Target Drive in Antioch around 6:30 a.m. when Kenneth Hale Jr., 30, an IHOP employee confronted the men about whether or not they had paid their bill.
According to police, they argued in the parking lot before Fletcher and Holland drove off in a Dodge Charger Daytona.
Hale got into a red car and followed the men to a parking lot at the Chimney Top Apartments on Chimney Top Drive.
The argument continued and Hale punched Fletcher in the head causing Fletcher to fall to the ground unconscious.
Holland fled on foot.
Hale then allegedly kicked the still unconscious Fletcher in the head before getting into the victim's Dodge.
According to witnesses, Hale used the victim's car to run over Fletcher twice before driving off.
Fletcher was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he is in critical condition.
The victim's Dodge was recovered a short time later on Mountain High Drive.
Hale, who has convictions in Illinois for possession of a weapon by a felon and aggravated battery, surrendered himself Sunday afternoon at the South Precinct.
