A semi truck driver was taken to a Tulsa hospital with a piece of glass in his eye after another man busted the window of his truck with a golf club during a road rage incident Monday afternoon, Tulsa Police said. 

TPD officers said the semi and a Tahoe were eastbound on Highway 11 driving towards I-244 when the driver of the Tahoe reacted after he said the semi cut him off as they approached stopped traffic due to congestion.

The driver of the Tahoe, 53-year-old James Cooper, got out of his vehicle and smashed the window of the semi with a golf club, police said. The head of the golf club flew out the passenger window and left a hole in it.

Police arrested Cooper for assault with a deadly weapon.
