Brian Metzler said.

Both drivers got out of the vehicles and exchanged words, after which Czerwinski returned to his van, retrieved a golf club and struck the victim in the head, Metzler said.The victim then jumped on Czerwinski in the roadway, the said.

Czerwinska picked up the club and struck the victim with it several times before police arrived, the sergeant said.

Both men were taken to St. Joseph’s Medical Center.

The victim was later released, Metzler said.

Czerwinski remained at the hospital and was to be charged with aggravated assault and weapons possession once he was released, he said.
