ODESSA - A family squabble in Odessa takes a violent turn when a man takes out his anger on his brother in law.

Police say 27-year-old Abdel Torres rammed his truck several times into his brother in law's pickup back in October.

We're told the impact almost caused the pickup to roll.
The truck spun out and stopped right in the middle of oncoming traffic.

The brother in law, Pedero Tercero, managed to escape and get to a family members house.

Tercero told police he feared for his life and the lives of his passengers.

He, along with his wife, Torres' sister and three other people were inside the truck at the time.

Torres was arrested on Tuesday at his home.

He's charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Torres is behind bars on a $25,000 bond.
