Authorities say the Windsor residents were arrested on Tuesday in connection with what was described as a "road rage incident" that ended on Place Road.

According to state police, 41-year-old Kent Wheeler was charged with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor. A woman identified as Wheeler's girlfriend, 35-year-old Karissa Tennant was charged with third-degree criminal mischief, a felony.

Police say troopers were called to investigate the February 22 incident. They determined that just after the road rage episode, Wheeler and Tennant left their vehicle. They then allegedly approached the other driver, who also had stopped.

Wheeler is said to have punched the other motorist in the face several times, causing an injury. Tennant is accused of kicking the other vehicle several times, causing over $250 worth of damage.

The injured driver was treated at a hospital for a laceration.

Wheeler and Tennant were issued appearance tickets and ordered to appear in Windsor town court on March 7.
