Just after 8:30 pm Friday night, Columbus Police Officer Yolanda Adams responded to 1900 Short Main Street in reference to a fight in progress. When she arrived, she found Johnny Durrah busting the windows out of a gray Nissan Sentra. She ordered Durrah to stop as she approached the vehicle. Durrah was injured and Adams called for an ambulance to come to the scene.
Across the street, Tyrone Blevins stood in the parking lot of Ali Quick Stop, bleeding from his face and hands. Officer William Thrasher arrived to assist and soon had Blevins in custody for Public Drunk.
Blevins told the officers that Durrah and several other unidentified black males had pulled him out of his car and assaulted him. However, he left out the part where he first hit Durrah with the car. Witnesses said that after Durrah was hit with the Nissan, several of his friends pulled
Blevins out of the car and started beating him while Durrah smashed the windows out of the car.
EMTs Lamar Thompson and Tony Fulghamarrived on scene and checked Blevins over, bandaging his bleeding hand before the driver refused further treatment. He was then transported to LCADC.
Johnny Durrah was loaded into the waiting ambulance and taken to BMH-GT where he was diagnosed with a broken nose and broken middle finger on his right hand.
