Police Were Dispatched To The Scene

The incident happened at the Wendy's located at 8900 Page Avenue on Monday. Overland Police were dispatched to the scene after a report of a fight in progress was received.

The victim told police that he had engaged in a dispute with an employee named Leon Johnson, during which Johnson physically attacked him from the driver's side window. The customer then attempted to defend himself by getting a hammer from his car, prompting Johnson to hijack the customer's vehicle.

Returning To The Scene

According to court documents, Johnson later returned to the scene, and struck the customer with the stolen car, knocking the hammer from his hand. He then exited the vehicle, retrieved the hammer, and started smashing the car's front windshield.

When the police attempted to detain Johnson, he reportedly resisted arrest and bit two officers. It remains unclear what initiated the altercation between the men.
