FARMINGTON — Police said a local man faces charges after he assaulted and terrorized a teen driver on the Webster Road on Saturday.

Charles Hubbard, 57, was arrested Sunday by Farmington police officer Derek Doucette after a 16 year-old driver went to the police station at approximately 2:25 p.m. Saturday to report the incident.

The teenager was driving down Webster Road, near Robin’s Flower Pot, when a male, later identified as Hubbard, threw a table into the road. The report did not indicate the size of the table or whether it was thrown into the driver’s path.

The teenager stopped to see what was going on and Hubbard punched him in the face and made threatening comments, Rachel Heseltine, department secretary, read from the officer’s report.

A third charge of criminal mischief was made Monday morning when Doucette gave Hubbard a summons for damage to the truck lights.

Hubbard told police he was out jogging earlier in the day and a truck went by with a loud exhaust, which made him angry, Heseltine said.

Hubbard remained at Franklin County Detention Center on Monday.
