[June 04, 2010]  MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- A Waffle House employee has survived without serious injury after three teens took off without paying and he clung to the hood of their car.

The incident occurred in Murfreesboro and Andrew Brian McKnight said he wasn't trying to be a hero, but climbed onto the hood when the driver tried to run over him in his escape.

The Daily News Journal reported that during the five-minute ordeal on Sunday the car reached speeds up to 60 miles per hour.

McKnight managed to fish his cell phone from his pocket and call 911.

The driver stopped shortly before police arrived.

Police charged an 18-year-old with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment. Two minors who were in the car were not charged.
