WEYMOUTH (CBS) – A Weymouth man was in court Monday answering to charges that he struck a man with his car while trying to evade a bar tab on St. Patrick’s Day.
Police say when 48-year-old Michael K. Fay of Weymouth, refused to pay his tab at Buck’s Bar and Grill, the 38-year-old victim, Scott McIntyre, followed him outside and demanded he return and pay up.

Fay then left the area.
McIntyre was taken to South Shore Hospital before he was transferred to Brigham & Women’s Hospital due to the severity of his injuries, police said.
Witnesses at the scene gave police a partial license plate number of the vehicle.
Police say Fay failed several field sobriety tests when they stopped his car on North Street a short time later.
He has been charged with driving while under the influence of alcohol (second offense), leaving the scene of an accident with personal injury, driving under the influence of alcohol causing serious bodily injury, driving to endanger and leaving the scene of an accident with property damage.
He was held on $5,000 cash bail prior to his arraignment Monday.
