An apparent ongoing dispute between two men results in one taken to the hospital and the other facing a felony charge. Police say they were called to a fight at Ozark Inn & Suites where they found Bruce Wayne Thompson on top of another man who appeared to be unconscious at the time. According to Thompson and witnesses at the scene, the men had had previous disagreements and even a physical fight recently that went unreported. On this occasion, Thompson claims he was defending himself from the victim, who police say has a history of mental illness. Thompson allegedly hit the man with a small wooden souvenir-type baseball bat. The victim was flown to University Hospital with extensive facial injuries, bleeding, and swelling. Thompson is charged with first-degree assault causing serious physical injury.
