The Ontario Provincial Police say that in the early hours of Saturday morning, two groups of people got into a verbal altercation in Lakeshore, Ont.
That's when police say a 27-year-old local man got into a vehicle and drove at the other group of people.
A 22-year-old Quebec City man was struck and taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The local man is alleged to have fled the scene. He was arrested shortly thereafter, police say.
The accused faces charges of assault with a weapon, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and failing to stop at the scene of a motor vehicle accident.
The charges have not been proven in court.
