Brownsville man's head struck in confrontation

| Monday, Sept. 27, 2010

A Brownsville man needed stitches to close a head wound because of a physical confrontation Sunday outside a wedding reception that was sparked by an unidentified person doing "doughnuts" in a social hall parking lot, state police at Uniontown said.

In a news release, Trooper David Hamer said Justin Jeffries, no age listed, was treated at Uniontown Hospital after someone struck him in the head in the parking lot of the Grindstone Volunteer Fire Department in Jefferson Township.

Police said they know who the assailant is and intend to file a simple assault charge with Belle Vernon District Judge Jesse Cramer.

Hamer said Jeffries confronted the driver of a truck that was spinning in circles in the gravel lot, causing rocks to be kicked up, hitting other vehicles.

Jeffries confronted the driver, which led to a second person jumping in and striking him.
