SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Police in San Antonio said they arrested a man who claimed it was "Jesus's will" that he ram a woman's car because she was not "driving like a Christian."
The Bexar County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that Michael Schwab, 52, told investigators he crashed his pickup truck into a woman's car at about 7:25 a.m. Friday on southbound U.S. 281 because "the other vehicle was not driving like a Christian and it was Jesus' will for him to punish the car," the San Antonio Express-News reported.
"He just said God said she wasn't driving right, and she needed to be taken off the road," Sheriff's Lt. Kyle Coleman said.
Sheriff's officials said Schwab told responders he was traveling faster than 100 mph when he hit the woman's car. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage as a result of the crash, but both drivers had only minor injuries.
"God must have been with them, 'cause any other time, the severity of this crash, it would have been a fatal," Coleman said.
Schwab was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, motor vehicle. He was jailed in lieu of $50,000 bond.

believes to have authority from Jesus to have killed thousands of
Americans and hundreds of thousands others in his useless and illegal
war. Why should this man think any differently than his president?
PS Not that my own country Switzerland is very much better. We host the
World Economic Forum which lays out the red carpet to other assumed war
criminals such as Dick Cheney, Henry Kissinger and Vladimir Putin.
