Man Facing Assault Charges after Hammer and Hug Attacks

By  | 

Last week Natrona County deputies were called to Main Street in Edgerton, Wyoming for an assault.

When they arrived, they found a man who had been struck in the head with a hammer and was bleeding profusely.

The man said in reports he had some friends over, one of them, 28-year-old David Taylor.

David arrived drunk and was trying to give the man a, “drunken hug”.

The man refused and pushed him away.

David continued to harass the man with aggressive hug attempts, the two began to fight and David then struck him in the head with a framing hammer, according to court reports.

Sheriff Deputies later found David who is facing felony assault charges.
