ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS — An angry dad chased a group of teens with his SUV in an effort to protect his daughter during a fist fight. Roy Williams Jr., 56, is facing a number of charges including 12 counts of aggravated assault with a vehicle, aggravated assault of public property, reckless driving, and reckless conduct. The incident was caught on camera by Nathan Velez, 15, who almost got run over by Williams, along with 12 other teens that were present. They had gathered at the playground because a fight was breaking out between Williams' 13-year-old daughter and a pair of 14-year-old girls. When Williams saw the fight he took a cane out of his Dodge Durango and threatened the girls who were trying to fight his daughter. The girls fled, but Williams was still angry so he got in his car and chased the teens away. Rockford Police Assistant Deputy Chief Doug Pann told WIFR: "It was very helpful to identify who the suspect was, but it doesn't necessarily tell the whole story. We have to take a look at it and then talk to the people who were there." Williams was taken to Winnebago County Jail and is being held on $15,000 bail. Local resident say there is more to the story than eyewitness accounts. Rockford resident Jay Larson wrote in a Facebook post: "This incident reflects a frustration which I have heard at neighborhood meetings for 8 years. When residents collectively alert police of a problem, and nothing gets done, frustration boils over. I have a 13 year old daughter to. She is not allowed to play at Nelson School Playground." ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
