According to police, two drivers were face-to-face in the center lane of 14 Mile Road and attempted to make turns. During the turn attempts, police said the drivers somehow became agitated. One of the drivers pulled into the parking lot of The Hideout bar. When the man got out of his vehicle, the other driver attempted to run him over, just narrowly missing him.

"We have been here 23 years. We have watched people grow up in this city and watched them grow old together. This is a great little city with hard working people where everyone helps each other out during good and bad times.
