(THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC) -- A father is suspected of running over and killing another dad after a fight escalated outside of Canyon Springs Elementary School in north Phoenix Monday, according to Phoenix police and court documents.
Anthony Parrinello, 31, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder, according to Sgt. Trent Crump, a spokesman for the Phoenix Police Department.
Parrinello got into a fight with Carmelo D'Alessandro, 42, at the school near 45th Avenue and Anthem Way on Monday, Crump said.
Parrinello wanted to settle the disagreement with a fight at a nearby Walmart. However, D'Alessandro decided to walk home instead of continue the fight, according to Maricopa County Superior Court documents.
When D'Alessandro did not show up at the Walmart, police suspect Parrinello went looking for him, Crump said.
Parrinello found D'Alessandro walking home. Parrinello is suspected of running the other father over, according to court documents.
D'Alessandro was found laying in the road with serious injuries. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died, Crump said.
Parrinello was found at a park with his car. The car looked like it had been in a collision and was cleaned up, Crump said.
D'Alessandro's blood was found on the vehicle, according to court documents.
Parrinello admitted to the altercation but denied involvement in the collision to police.
Parrinello's ex-wife had an order of protection issued against him at the time of the incident for unrelated events, according to court documents.
