NAPLES, Fla. -- A Naples man is accused of hitting two people with his car after a bar fight.

According to an arrest report, 35-year-old Christopher Lee got into a fight at Rusty's Bar on Immokalee Road back on December 22nd.

Deputies say after security broke the fight up, Lee went to the parking lot and picked another fight with the same people, throwing bottles at their vehicle.

When they got out of their car and approached Lee, deputies say Lee ran them over and then drove off.

Both victims were airlifted to the hospital.

Lee was identified by an employee at the bar, who found Lee’s walled and driver’s license at the scene. One witness identified Lee as a server at a North Naples restaurant, but the arrest report identifies Lee as a teacher in Collier County.

A spokesperson for the Collier County School District says they will evaluate the situation once the district reopens after winter break.

Lee is now charged with two counts of Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon.
