An argument literally accelerated into an assault Tuesday afternoon when a Gene Autry man used his vehicle to ram his point across.

According to Ardmore police reports, Ryan Marusak, 36, was arrested shortly after 3 p.m. He was booked into the Carter County Detention Center and formerly charged with assault and battery by the district attorney's office Wednesday. Marusak made an initial court appearance following the filing of charges. Bond was set at $40,000.

Sgt. Ryan Hunnicutt, Ardmore Police Department Public Information Officer, said officers responded to the 600 block of Veterans Blvd. after receiving a report of road rage. Marusak is accused of ramming his vehicle into the victim's as a result of a disagreement.
