BUFORD, AR (KAIT) – A man allegedly assaults his own brother with a baseball bat during an argument over a damaged vehicle.

Baxter County Police say William Richard Royer, 24, of Buford came to his brother's residence and started yelling at him over a vehicle that had been damaged in an accident. Royer then allegedly began to break the glass on the front door of his brother's home, and swung the bat once into his brother's left arm.

Authorities say when his brother fell to the floor, Royer continued to stand over him and yell for several minutes before finally leaving. A friend of the brother's took him to the emergency room immediately after Royer left.

Deputy Trey Edings says Royer admitted to the incident when questioned, and was arrested. Royer was charged with second degree domestic battery and third degree criminal mischief, and was booked into the Baxter County Detention Center. He posted a $15,000 bond and was released.
