An Illinois man is accused of trying to run over a group of teens after his daughter got into a fight.

Dramatic cell phone video (below) shows an SUV driving on the grass as kids scream and scatter. Authorities say that Roy Williams went after the kids with his SUV after his daughter got into a fight.

Williams initially called the police, but allegedly took matters into his own hands rather than waiting for them to arrive.

Police say he first threatened the kids with a cane before getting into his SUV and driving it toward the kids.

Williams claims that he was just trying to defend his daughter.

Williams was charged with aggravated assault with a vehicle and assault with a deadly weapon. He was held on $150,000 bond.
