CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

A Clarksville man is recovering Friday after he was severely beaten in what police are calling a case of road rage.

It's going to be a long road to recovery for Jesus Arvelo.

Arvelo said he was driving north on Trenton Road Thursday morning when the driver of a silver Volvo tried to pass him.

Arvelo said the driver seemed agitated as they were traveling through a school zone, near Northeast High School. Then both drivers pulled over to the side of the road and got out of their cars.

The driver started screaming, "You don't know how to drive, you don't know how to drive," explained Arvelo. "He jumped on top of me and kept punching me in the back of the head. He threw about ten blows or maybe more," he continued.

Arvelo has a broken eye socket which will require surgery and a broken left hand. He has a gash in the back of his head that required four staples and he suffered a concussion.

Arvelo's wife said when she learned what happened, she feared the worst.

"He had a kidney transplant several years back and I could think about was, they've gotten his kidney," said Taunja Arvelo

Arvelo said he regrets getting out of the car but hopes police find the suspect.

Arvelo said the suspect had black hair and brown eyes with a mustache and glasses. He was wearing a white polo shirt and driving a Volvo.

Police don't have any suspects at this time.
