A 48-year-old man and a 43-year-old man were arguing over women Sunday afternoon, according to a Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office arrest report, when the 43-year-old pulled out a large stick and started beating the other man.

Police said Johnny Malone, the 48-year-old, was bleeding out of the left side of his head. He was taken to Erlanger hospital.

According to Benny Cook, the 43-year-old who was arrested for aggravated assault, Malone pushed him, and he grabbed a stick, which police said looked like a baseball bat, and started whacking Malone.

The victim told him that his wife, who he is separated from, opened his car door and attacked him when he pulled into the post office to pick up his disability check, the report stated.
