The Morning Sun reported the man was hit Saturday shortly after Central Michigan University’s football game against Eastern Michigan University ended.

Police said the pedestrians were trying to get a 19-year-old friend under control and the would-be good Samaritan apparently approached to lend assistance. When the man redirected his anger at the motorist, police said the motorist drove away and hit the man.

Police were called. The driver turned himself in but wasn’t arrested.

Prosecutors were expected to review the case for possible charges.
