WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) -- A 53-year-old Wausau man has been arrested after police say he started a road rage incident and allegedly hit another man's car with a baseball bat.
 
Wausau police Lt. Mark Pankow says the incident happened Thursday night. Pankow says the Wausau man cut off a man he knew, got out of his car, then began beating the other man's car with a baseball bat.
That man then got out of his car, took the bat, and hit the Wausau man in the head with it.
 
Pankow tells WSAW-TV the Wausau man pulled out a gun, and the fight ended.
 
The man was treated at a hospital for injuries then arrested on charges including reckless endangerment of safety, battery, disorderly conduct and possession of THC.
