PARKS, Nev. — A Nevada man has been arrested on allegations that he shot another man in a bizarre road-rage incident that ended with the victim driving himself to the hospital in the suspect's pickup.

Sparks police say 20-year-old Cesar Romero has been booked on several charges including assault with a deadly weapon.

Witnesses told police the victim was driving an Audi on Tuesday morning when Romero allegedly ran him off a suburban street in a Toyota pickup truck.

Police say Romero shot the man in the chest. They say the victim eventually wrestled the gun away from Romero and struck him in the head with a baseball bat before taking Romero's truck and driving himself to the hospital.

Neither man suffered life-threatening injuries.

Romero fled on foot but soon was apprehended. Police say they found a handgun in his truck.
