MIDLAND - A case of road rage put one Midland man behind bars.

According to the report, Jorge Lopez tried to pass another vehicle and became angry with the vehicle when he couldn't get around them.

Lopez continued to follow them onto Industrial.

That's when he went on the left side of the other vehicle and attempted to run them off the road.

They stopped and called the police and that's when Lopez apparently approached the car with a hammer.

Deputies arrested Lopez.

Lopez is charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
