A 25-year-old man in Florida, USA, has gone on a "violent rage" apparently because he lost an arm-wrestling match.

Erick Blanton allegedly drove his pick-up truck across a lawn, over a mailbox and at several people after losing the contest on Sunday, according to local police reports.

Witnesses told Fort Pierce police he also drew a rifle and pressed the barrel against the forehead of the man who defeated him.

Police arrested Blanton at his home shortly afterwards.

He faces four counts of aggravated assault with a vehicle and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
