A College Station man was arrested after police say he drove his car toward a victim following a routine car accident on Thursday in Bryan.

Eyewitnesses told police that the driver of a Dodge Charger drove aggressively toward the truck driver as that person approached the car. Police say the driver jumped on the hood to avoid getting hit. They say the driver continued to flee by heading east on Briarcrest Drive while trying to knock the victim from his vehicle.

Officers say the suspect pulled into a gas station at Briarcrest Drive and Boonville Road.

The victim was able to get off the vehicle without injury.

The suspect then took off again on Boonville Road until he came to a stop near drive. Witnesses then boxed the vehicle in until the police arrived.

Andrew Bush, 50, was taken into custody. He now faces a slew of charges:

  • Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, which is a second-degree Felony punishable for 2-20 years in prison.
  • DWI 2nd which is a class A, a misdemeanor punishable for up to 1 year in county jail.
  • Fail to leave information (hit and run), which is a class B misdemeanor punishable for up to 180 days in county jail.
