NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A minor accident turned into a bigger problem for a truck driver following a case of road rage, according to Nacogdoches Police.

Sgt. Charles Cain said traffic was backed up after a minor traffic accident around 2:45 p.m. on US 59 South, just outside the loop. A truck driver apparently was upset that he had to wait in traffic so long and eventually got out with a blunt object and made threats against another driver.

James Halpain, 48, of Ava, Mo., was arrested on a charge of terroristic threat. He managed to bond out of jail before 5 p.m. Friday.
