Brandon Pierpoint, 19, was walking away from the Beach House Hotel on Monday night when it is alleged 50-year-old Andrew Alan Jubb got behind the wheel of his car and deliberately ran him over.

Police were told the pair had been arguing at the Scarness pub shortly beforehand.

Hervey Bay Police Sergeant Paul Byrne said the teenager had "gone over the top" of the car and was taken to the Hervey Bay Hospital.

A spokesman for Queensland Health confirmed the man had been treated for minor injuries and kept overnight for observation before being released early on Tuesday.

The incident occurred about 9.15pm on Monday.

Mr Jubb, who was on parole at the time, was arrested soon after and allegedly returned a blood alcohol reading of .131.

His car has been impounded for 90 days.
