A Swisher man has been charged for punching a 70-year-old man because he didn’t like his driving.
Police reports indicate Brandon J. Poulson, 22, was driving behind a man and his wife 1400 block of Greencastle Road in Swisher on March 27 around 12:48 a.m. when Poulson began yelling and cursing at the man for “driving like an old man.”
The man pulled over to let Poulson pass, but Poulson pulled alongside the man and got out of his truck, police said. The man got out of his car and was immediately struck in the head and face several times, causing a large cut on the top of his head, above his left eye, and swelling and bruising to both ears. The cut on the man’s head required numerous staples and the cut above his eye required stitches.
Poulson admitted to striking the man in the face several times because he was upset with the way he was driving. He was charged with willful injury causing bodily injury, a class D felony.
Poulson was being held in the Johnson County Jail Tuesday morning on a $10,000 cash-only bond.
