JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Our news partner The Florida Times-Union is reporting one man is in critical condition after he was run over following a fight at Maverick's at the Landing.

The Times-Union reports witnesses told them the fight started after a man punched a woman outside the downtown bar.

Other bar patrons then attacked the man, continuing to punch him as he got into his Chevrolet truck, the T-U said.

When the man tried to leave the scene, he hit several vehicles with his truck.

The victim jumped on the hood of the man's truck, the T-U said, trying to prevent him from leaving.  The man then slammed on the brakes, causing the victim to fall to the ground.

The T-U said the man in the truck then ran over the victim's head while he was on the ground.

A witness in a Ford Explorer chased the driver of the Chevrolet pickup who kept going, according to our news partner.  The two vehicles hit each other on Bay Street, and that's when the driver of the Explorer pulled a gun.

The T-U reports witnesses told them the Chevrolet driver kept going despite the gun being pulled but was caught by JSO deputies several blocks away.

Detective D.B. Edmonds with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office told the T-U the victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Witnesses told the newspaper the victim was out celebrating his 21st birthday.
