Sam Taylor Evans, 77, owner of the Sam T. Evans truck supply store, was arrested and faces charges of aggravated assault, reckless driving and assault.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Evans attempted to punch the employee during an altercation Friday before telling the man he was fired and needed to leave the property.

The victim told an Ogden police officer that Evans had fired the man "several times over the years that he had worked for him," so the employee left the property to let Evans "cool off" before planning on returning to talk to him.
