GRESHAM - A man accused of running down a group of people outside a Gresham restaurant last week was due in court Monday.

Brad Eason, 30, faces attempted murder, assault and DUII charges after the crash at the Shari s restaurant near Southwest Highland Drive and Powell Boulevard. Gresham police said a group of 12 people, including Eason, had left a bar and were ending their night at Shari s when an argument started between Eason and two women.

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 and hitting the four victims, police said.

None had injuries that were life-threatening, but three were taken to the hospital.
