Man Suffers Broken Jaw In Tavern Assault

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- Frederick police say a bar patron suffered a jaw fracture and head lacerations when he was attacked for calling another drinker a name.

William Halley, 34, is charged with first- and second-degree assault in the incident early Thursday morning at Guido's in downtown Frederick.

Police say the victim was sitting at the bar with Halley and another man when he called the other man a name.

They say Halley hit the victim in the back of the head with a glass, knocked him to the ground and beat him in the face and head with a bar stool.

Halley was taken to the Frederick County jail and couldn't be reached for comment.
