Wal-Mart worker accused of beating boss with bat
(AP) – 2 days ago
NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Police in New Haven accused a Wal-Mart worker of beating an assistant manager in a store aisle with an aluminum baseball bat after getting reprimanded for the second time in a few days. Officer Joseph Avery said Tuesday that police are still looking for the 26-year-old suspect. They plan to charge him with first-degree assault and breach of peace.
Avery said the worker grabbed the bat off a shelf and hit 29-year-old assistant manager George Freibott nearly a dozen times at about midnight Monday, after Freibott wrote the worker up for poor job performance.
Avery said Freibott suffered a possible broken arm and many bruises.
Police said the store was closed to shoppers at the time.
