A woman told her husband she was going to a public swimming pool at a local park.

Jack Arnold, 47, of San Juan County, New Mexico, decided to surprise his wife Alex, and join her where they would spend time swimming together.

Arnold, who is a manager at his family’s wine vineyard in San Juan, was able to take time off from work midday to be with his wife.

However, instead of surprising his wife, it was Arnold who was surprised. When he arrived at the swimming pool, he saw another man, who was identified as Henry Espinoza, driving his wife’s van while his wife was in the passenger seat.

Arnold was understandably very upset and wanted to confront the two, but when his wife spotted him and they took off.

Arnold began chasing them, he drove erratically, pulling to the side of his wife’s truck and swerving in front of it, several times. The husband and wife’s vehicles collided several times during the 19 mile long chase. Arnold also hit other cars during the chase.

The chase finally ended when Arnold collided with another vehicle causing his vehicle to fall into a ditch. After the accident, Arnold allegedly pulled out a pocket knife and chased Espinoza.

Police were called and Arnold was placed under arrest by police in San Juan County, shortly thereafter.
He faces charges of aggravated assault, leaving the scene of an accident, failing to report a car accident and resisting arrest
