The victim's roommate, along with a neighbor tell police that Oakes did attempt to run the victim over, but he jumped out of the way before the car could hit him and punched the window of the vehicle.
Oakes was charged with Felonious Assault and Criminal Trespassing. Hester was charged with criminal trespassing, but was released from custody on a $500.
Oakes was arrested on Thursday in the lobby of the Sebring Police Department .
