Attack alleged after arm-wrestling loss

A Florida man was arrested and charged with several counts of assault after allegedly trying to run down four people with a pickup truck after losing an arm-wrestling match, according to this report:

According to the arrest report, Erick Lee Blanton was visiting a home in the 400 block of Sunrise Drive early Sunday morning when he challenged another man to an arm wrestling contest and lost. The winner of the match told officers that Blanton then became upset.
Blanton left the house, got in a red pickup and allegedly drove it across the lawn, over a mailbox and tried to hit bystanders.
