FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) - Fort Pierce police say a 25-year-old man sprang into a violent rage after losing an arm-wrestling match.

Erick Lee Blanton allegedly drove his pickup truck across a lawn, over a mailbox and at several people after losing on Sunday. Witnesses told police he also drew a rifle and pressed the barrel against forehead of the man who beat him.

Police arrested Blanton at his home shortly after arriving on-scene. He faces four counts of aggravated assault with a vehicle and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

It could not be immediately determined if Blanton had an attorney.
