A Hurst man was expected to be released from jail late Thursday afternoon after his arrest a day earlier on suspicion of using his car to hit two striking workers outside the Bell Helicopter plant.Cullen McNair, 76, on Thursday posted bonds totaling $20,000 on two charges of aggravated assault, but he was still waiting to be released at 2:45 p.m., according to jail records.

A jail staffer said it might be about 4:30 p.m.

before the process was complete.An earlier article incorrectly stated that McNair was released Wednesday.Police identified the injured men as John Bird, 50, of Fort Worth and Jimmy Shook, 53, of Alvarado.Shook was treated and released at Texas Health Hurst-Euless-Bedford hospital, said Jennifer Gordon, a hospital spokeswoman.

Medical information on Bird was unavailable, although police indicated that neither of the men was seriously injured."I know one person got his foot run over, and that was probably the worst of the injuries," Fort Worth police Capt.

Bryan Sudan said.

It was the first arrest during the month-old strike, Sudan said.

He added that he didn�t know whether any tickets had been issued to anyone on either side of the strike."We�ve had minor incidents," Sudan said, "[But] this is the first custodial arrest we�ve made out there.

"The motive, I can�t tell you.

That�s going to come from statements," he said.A witness, Mike Sandberg of Keller, said he has been picketing with fellow strikers since June 14."There was a guy in a silver Miata who was getting to work and he was behind another guy," Sandberg said.

"The [two men] were walking between the two cars, and this guy was trying to swerve around to get in to work faster."Sandberg said one man�s foot was run over and another man was "clipped" by a mirror on the car."He was in cuffs and they put him in the back of the car," Sandberg said of the driver.

"There was no mistaking he was being arrested."Staff Writer Yamil Berard contributed to this report.
