Man Frustrated With Traffic Hits Public Safety Officer With Truck, Police Report Says

Police believe it could be a case of road rage that made an East Texas senior strike an officer with his truck.

68-year-old Bruce Freeman was arrested Monday. He's accused of driving into a Public Safety Officer who was directing traffic near Old Bullard Road in Tyler. The officer is okay.
The police report says Freeman was told to stop by the officer, became angry, and then hit the officer with his truck. The same reports says Freeman admitted he was late for work and tired of waiting in traffic.

He's charged with aggravated assault against a public servant with a deadly weapon.
He was released from jail Tuesday on $5,000 bond.
