(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on a charge of assault after allegedly using his prosthetic arm to beat a husband and his wife during a road rage incident, according to police in Missouri.

Jefferson County police said that they have arrested 28-year-old Joshua Stockinger, after being accused of removing his prosthetic arm and breaking the legs of a man.

He was charged with four counts of assault. Stockinger was booked into the Jefferson County Jail, and his bail was set at $150,000.

According to the police investigation, Stockinger confronted a couple during a road rage incident. At some point, Stockinger removed his prosthetic arm and used it as a weapon to seriously injure the husband and wife.

The husband, 52, suffered two broken legs, and his wife, 53, had cuts on the head. This was not the first time that Stockinger used his prosthetic arms as a weapon.

Two months ago, Stockinger was seen on a surveillance video of Jim Butler Chevrolet dealership getting into a fight with a police officer.

In that incident, he is accused of hitting the officer several times in the head with his prosthetic arm. After the incident, Stockinger’s prosthetic arm was seized by police.

The arm was returned to him before the latest attack.
