A truck driver was arrested in Connecticut on Wednesday after he reportedly attacked a worker with a martial arts weapon.
California-based truck driver Maximum Elbey, 34, was arrested on Wednesday evening and charged with illegal possession of a weapon in a motor vehicle, carrying a dangerous weapon, second-degree breach of peace, second-degree assault, and third-degree assault, according to a news release from the South Windsor Police Department.
Police say that shortly before 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 2, they were called to the Mobis Parts America auto parts store after Elbey became involved in an altercation with an employee.
After a verbal altercation, police say that Elbey physically attacked the employee, punching him in the face and striking him in the head three times with “wooden nunchucks.”
Other employees were able to restrain Elbey until officers arrived on scene.
The employee was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
“Located in the passenger compartment of Elbey’s tractor trailer was two thirteen inch long swords and several other martial arts style weapons,” police said.
Elbey was held on a $75,000 bond and was set to appear in court on Thursday morning.
