Washington County Sheriff: Suspect Struck Victim with Wooden Club

News

A Chipley man was arrested last week after striking a man in the head with a wooden club, Washington County deputies wrote in a news release.

On Sunday afternoon, at 1:27 p.m., September 16th, deputies responded to a report of a physical disturbance at a residence on Caroline Drive, following a 911 call. The caller advised dispatchers that the victim was struck in the head and was conscious but not moving at the time, deputies wrote. When deputies arrived on the scene, the victim could tell the deputy that he needed help now because he was “barely hanging on.”
