The truck followed the tour bus driver, Charles Hickox III of Alabama, off Interstate 80 near Greenwood, NE when the truck driver took out a large knife, prompting him to immediately call 9-1-1 in fear of his life.

While he was taking down the truck driver's information, the trucker then allegedly got out of his vehicle with a massive screw driver in hand. The Nebraska State Patrol arrested 50-year-old Richard Zuhlke of North Platte, NE on "suspicion of assault."

Church launched his 2017 Holdin' My Own Tour Fri night (Jan. 13th) at Lincoln, Nebraska's Pinnacle Bank Arena. He will perform in Minneapolis at Target Center next Fri evening, Jan 20th. The show is SOLD OUT!
