ENNIS

A period of road rage led to the arrest of a Clevland, Texas resident by Ennis Police on Dec. 22.

Robert Havens, 21, has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for an incident that took place at about 1 p.m.

“Havens and his wife were traveling on Interstate Highway 45 and thought a car was following them for some reason. They pulled into the Exxon at U.S. Highway 287 and Highway 34. The victims (then) drove around the building,” Ennis Police Lt. Mike Hopson said. “Havens ran across the parking lot carrying a baseball bat and threw it through the passenger side window of the car that he thought was following them. He injured the front seat passenger and the driver.”

Hopson said the victims got out of their vehicle and defended themselves, which caused a fight to break out. He added that road rage from an incident on the highway led to the altercation.

Ennis Police officers, along with medical personnel, were called to the scene. Havens was arrested and taken to an area hospital to be checked out as a precaution. He was then booked into the Ennis jail by police.

The two victims were treated by medical personnel at the scene and released. Havens was later transferred to the Wayne McCollum Detention Center in Waxahachie.

According to online records from the detention center, Havens is no longer listed as an inmate.
