SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) --The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office reports that 27-year-old John Robert Dinapoli III got into an argument with his girlfriend early Thursday morning.

Neighbors came to investigate, and the confrontation reportedly continued outside. The sheriff's office says Dinapoli got in his car to drive off but first gunned the engine and drove at a group of people.

The car ran over 24-year-old David Guckert, pinning him under
the vehicle. Guckert was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment,
and three others sustained minor injuries.

Dinapoli fled the scene but was arrested Thursday evening. He
was charge with four counts of aggravated battery. He was being
held without bail.
