A Marco Island man is accused of striking a waiter Saturday evening at a restaurant on Fifth Avenue South in Naples.

The Naples Police Department says the waiter at Vergina Restaurant opened the door for someone to leave when William Hutchinson, 49, “intentionally struck him on the face causing the victim to fall to the floor.”

Hutchinson fled and was caught by police a few blocks away. He was taken to the Collier County Jail and faces a battery charge. The arrest report states that Hutchinson was trespassing on the property on Friday.
