According to HCSO Lt. Robert Schields, the man's girlfriend told deputies the suspect choked her and threw her against the wall.
When deputies arrived, the suspect ran off and initially tried to hop over a fence. That's when deputies deployed a Taser on the suspect, but he still managed to run across the street.
"He was able to get up and that's when he ran across the street and got struck by the vehicle," Schields said.
The driver of the vehicle who hit the unidentified suspect won't face any charges, according to Schields.
He said no other injuries were reported. The incident remains under investigation.
