Tampa, Florida -- A man who was struck by a car while crossing the street is facing charges after deputies say he attacked the driver who hit him.
The Hillsborough Sheriff's Office says 25-year-old Philip Jackson was walking across Hillsborough Avenue near Longboat Boulevard when he was hit around 1 a.m.
The driver, 41-year-old Chuckkarat Ratanakarn, got out of his car to check on Jackson, but the pedestrian allegedly responded by punching him in the face.
Hillsborough deputies say Jackson knocked Ratanakarn to the ground and demanded money. He then went in Ratanakarn's car to take anything of value inside. Deputies say after that, Jackson pulled out a handgun, fired it in the air and demanded Ratanakarn leave the scene.
Jackson reportedly fled to a nearby apartment complex, where deputies caught up with him.
Jackson was treated for his injury and taken to an area hospital. The driver of the vehicle was also treated for minor injuries.
Deputies say Jackson is facing a host of charges, including felony battery, burglary, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony and discharging a firearm in public.
