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.

Now, let’s be perfectly clear about this, I don’t endorse beating the Devourers of Joy with any object at all; but in this guy’s defense, if he had been written up a third time he might have been terminated.
