One Arrest After Domestic Disturbance Backs Up Traffic on SPID
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
It was a shocking sight for drivers on SPID late Friday morning as two men were reportedly seen fighting on the shoulder of the freeway near Carroll Lane.
It happened on the westbound side of SPID. The Nueces County Sheriff's Department said it was a case of domestic disturbance that had been going on all day between a young man in his 20s and an older man in his 50s.
"They witnessed the young one hitting the older man, and the young one had jumped in the bed of the pickup truck, kicked the window out, and that's when the deputies came up and investigated," said Lt. Ashley Isaac of the Nueces County Sheriff's Office.
The deputies were eventually able to move the men off the freeway and into a nearby parking lot. The older man was taken to the hospital to be checked out, and the younger individual was arrested on assault charges.
