(video)--After bystanders broke up a bar brawl, one of the men hopped onto his Harley-Davidson and steered straight toward the man he’d been fighting, Davie police said Tuesday.

Evans Diaz hit Marco Correa and dragged him around the parking lot of the Twin Peaks sports bar at 2000 S. University Drive, according to a police report.

Another man was able to jump out of the motorcycle’s path, the report said.

A portion of the incident Friday night was captured on cellphone video. It shows Diaz, police say, punching Correa several times. Shortly after the men are pulled apart, headlights shine upon a small group standing in the parking lot and a motorcycle rams into Correa’s legs.

“Evans kept driving the motorcycle, dragging Marco through the parking lot,” the arrest report said. “Evans then falls off of the motorcycle and was subdued by bystanders.”

The video does not show the dragging.

When police got there, Diaz, 32, was lying on the ground next to his crashed motorcycle. He was taken to a hospital for treatment before he was taken to jail.

Diaz, of Davie, was arrested on two felony charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of misdemeanor battery. He posted $16,000 and got out of jail Sunday, records show.

Correa was treated at the scene and refused to go to the hospital, police said.
