OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities arrested a 52-year-old Oklahoma City man after he allegedly tried to  hit his wife with his truck.

On Tuesday, officers were called to S.E. 29th St. and S. Durland after learning about an assault.

According to the arrest affidavit, witnesses saw 52-year-old Buddy Jordan arguing with a woman in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant.

Witnesses told authorities Jordan threw the victim’s belongings into the road.

While the victim was grabbing her things from the street, witnesses told police that Jordan attempted to hit her with his truck.

One of the witnesses put the victim in her car and drove away from the area.

However, the report says Jordan allegedly followed them and began weaving in and out of traffic.

When he caught up to the woman’s vehicle, he allegedly swerved in front of her car and forced her off the road.

At that point, authorities say Jordan got out of truck and started banging on the doors of the car.

Witnesses say when the woman began to call police, Jordan left the area.

After police caught up to Jordan, he allegedly began calling them names and said he would “twist your head off and stab your eyes out.”

Jordan was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.
