ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Angelina County Sheriff’s office arrested a 40-year-old man in connection to allegations that he got mad at his wife because she wouldn’t let him drive and threatened her and their two children with a crescent wrench Thursday.

William Rodney Lowery, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a second-degree felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge and two state-jail felony endangering a child charges. No bail amounts have been set for his charges yet.

According to an Angelina County Sheriff’s Office report, ACSO deputies were called out to a disturbance on U.S. Highway 69 North at about 6:39 p.m. However, the report stated that the incident started at Jack in the Box.

After he took some prescription pain pills for his back, Lowery wanted to drive, but his wife wouldn’t let him do it, the report stated. On the way to Highway 69, Lowery and his wife started arguing, and he allegedly threatened her and their two children with a crescent wrench.

When the couple’s vehicle got to the vicinity of Dollar General and the Idylwood subdivision, the wife managed to get out of the vehicle, and she called a friend to come get her.

ACSO deputies caught up to Lowery on FM 706 and arrested him. He was taken to the county jail with any further incident.
