HUNTSVILLE, Ark. (AP) _ Two men are charged with beating a

Madison County justice of the peace who was treated for a gash on

his head. Justice of the Peace Hooshang Nazarali suffered the

injury in the attack last weekend after he stopped on a county road

to help two men who appeared to be having car trouble.

The prosecutor says Roy Dean Jarvias Junior of the community of

Crosses and Cameron Garrett Jones have been charged in the attack.

The incident happened on a county road near Crosses. Nazarali owns

Crosses Grocery and Cafe. He was treated at Washington Regional

Medical Center and released.
