GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Graphic cell phone videos surfaced from a fight on Grand Rapids’ southeast side Monday. It showed people crowding around a fight between two women, who officers said are former friends. Then a driver runs one woman over with a car.

The fight happened near Prospect Avenue SE and Garden Street. In one word, Grand Rapids Police Sgt. Terry Dixon called it, “disturbing.” The GRPD is investigating the assault, and officers have identified, and continue to interview, the people involved.

As of Wednesday, Dixon said charges are likely coming soon, possibly including felony vehicular assault.

“It is very disturbing based on this video that you see, this is not something that you’d want to see every day happen to anyone,” said Dixon. “It is very disturbing.”

Although Dixon said he “cannot say he has never seen this before,” he did tell FOX 17 that “this is not common.”

Dixon said the video will play a significant role in their investigation. However, they question why anyone filming something like this would not stop and try to break up the fight.

      Igornance knows no race!! whether it was hitting a person with a car, drowning babies, shooting up a school full of students etc. This shouldnt be made into a racial thing- all communties have their share of idiots. Your
      comment only incudes you in that category now.

        You left one thing out, the fact that these things tend to happen at least 2-3 times a week on the S.E. side that is made up of 90%+ African Americans………. Your worthless community is 110% OUT OF CONTROL!

      Speak for your neighborhood dear and your limit ability to live in other states to see Africa American in a different environments . White people have been kill there own people for centuries and blacks for decades. Ignorant play a major role in people of all colors and lack of education for blacks. Now is there a lot of violence in the African American culture yes and that’s something that need to change.
