ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A work crew boss, accused of beating one of his employees, is ready to face his punishment. 

Angelina County deputies arrested Mario Rodarte in July. He's accused of hitting an employee in the face, arms and chest with a pipe in 2013.

The employee told officials he had to use his pocketknife to fend off Rodarte. 

Rodarte will be in court at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. He's facing one charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
