Police: Would-be good Samaritan hits man with car

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) - Police say a would-be good Samaritan who apparently stopped to help a group of pedestrians in Mount Pleasant ended up hitting 1 of them with his car after his assistance was unwanted.

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

Police say 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 say 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.
