After investigating into the matter further, the North Dakota Highway Patrol levied additional charges against an Alabama man involved in a bizarre road rage incident Sunday night on Interstate 94 near Richardton, according to an release sent Thursday afternoon.

After being charged with driving under the influence Sunday evening, Jeremy P. Wilson, 34, of Birmingham, Ala., was also slapped with simple assault, criminal mischief, reckless driving, driving while suspended and leaving the scene of an accident, according to the release.

In a detailed account of the incident, Sgt. Dan Haugen stated that Wilson began to ram the side of a semi truck while traveling eastbound on I-94 sometime around 6 p.m. After the semi pulled over near milemarker 82, Wilson allegedly climbed onto the truck, broke the driver’s side window and began to “strike” the vehicle’s driver.

Wilson then got off the truck and attempted to light some leaking diesel fuel from a tank on the semi’s refrigerated trailer, according to the release. Numerous calls were also made last week to the Dickinson Police Department regarding a number of disturbances that Wilson was involved in, according to a representative of the Dickinson Police Department.
