A man who reportedly attacked his brother's car with a bat is in the hospital after he was apparently run over by the brother.

According to police, the brothers were arguing at a house along West Hermosa Drive on Wednesday when one of the men grabbed a bat and began to smash the car windows.

His brother got into the car and began to drive away before turning back to pick up several people who were still at the house. Police say the bat-wielding brother continued to hit the car and that's when the driver ran over his brother.

The injured man was taken to a hospital and is expected to be okay.

Investigators say the brothers were arguing over money and the car. They say the car may have also been used in a hit-and-run crash earlier in the evening.

The brother who was driving the car now faces aggravated assault charges.
