Dallas Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson told police he "had road rage" after he was arrested on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on July 4, according to the Dallas Morning News' Naheed Rajwani.

Citing a probable cause affidavit, Rajwani reported Wilson placed a rifle in the back of his pickup truck after he engaged in a dispute over a parking spot and hit a woman with his truck at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

"Wilson exhibited a deadly weapon during the commission of this assault, causing [the man] to fear death or serious bodily injury to himself," police wrote of the woman's brother-in-law in the affidavit.

Police later told TMZ Sports the woman Wilson allegedly struck with his truck did not suffer any injuries.

According to NFL.com, Wilson could be subject to NFL discipline under the terms of the league's personal conduct policy.
