A 76-year-old Texas man is facing a charge after being accused of punching and trying to choke a police officer during a traffic stop.
The Bryan-College Station Eagle reports Arthur Lee Wright was pulled over after nearly hitting a College Station police officer's patrol car while making an unsafe lane change.
During the Friday stop, the officer told Wright she remembered him from a previous accident in which he hit another vehicle and she would be giving him a ticket.
Police allege that Wright then stepped out of his car, slammed the officer into his vehicle and tried to choke her.
Wright was charged with assault on a public servant. He is free on a $10,000 bond. It was not immediately known if Wright had an attorney.
