GRESHAM Three people were taken to the hospital, and another person had minor injuries, after getting hit by a car during a fight outside of a Shari s restaurant in Gresham early Friday morning.

Police arrested 30-year-old Brad Eason for attempted murder, assault and DUII.

The fight happened around 4 a.m. at the restaurant near Southwest Highland Drive and Powell Boulevard.

Gresham police said a group of 12 people, including Eason, had left a bar and was ending their night at Shari s when an argument started between Eason and two females.

The group went outside and a 21-year-old man got in a short physical fight with Eason before the two separated. Eason got in his Mercedes and was driving out of the lot when witnesses said they heard the car s tires lose traction. Eason struck an SUV before driving onto the walkway, hitting the four victims, police said.

One 23-year-old man directly in front of the car hit the windshield before being thrown into a large window behind him, knocking out the window frame.

In all, three were taken to the hospital. Two people were released and a fourth did not seek treatment, police said. None of the injuries were life-threatening.
