CANTONMENT, Fla. (WKRG) — A fight between two families in one Cantonment neighborhood escalated to one man running another man over twice with his car, according to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office (ECSO).

Later, Brandon Tyler allegedly drove into the yard hitting the victim, who had been fighting with his dad, knocking him to the ground then Tyler did donuts spinning out in the front yard before hitting the victim a second time with his silver Lincoln, according to the sheriff’s office.
Brandon Tyler’s 93-year-old grandmother said she didn’t see everything that happened but when she saw the other man trying to hit her son, she tried to intervene but hurt her leg and had to be taken by helicopter to a hospital. The son of the man who was allegedly run over was also involved in the fight. He said Brandon’s father also hit him with the metal pole.
