Wal-Mart worker accused of beating boss with bat
Wal-Mart worker accused of beating boss with bat

NEW HAVEN, Conn. Police in New Haven accused a Wal-Mart worker of beating an assistant manager in a store aisle with an aluminum baseball bat after getting reprimanded for the second time in a few days. Officer Joseph Avery said Tuesday that police are still looking for the 26-year-old suspect. They plan to charge him with first-degree assault and breach of peace.

Avery said the worker grabbed the bat off a shelf and hit 29-year-old assistant manager George Freibott nearly a dozen times at about midnight Monday, after Freibott wrote the worker up for poor job performance.

Avery said Freibott suffered a possible broken arm and many bruises.

Police said the store was closed to shoppers at the time.

1. Violence like this is never justified, but I can see where it can happen
Sounds like the asst. manager got on his last nerve and the guy let him have it. People are often promoted to management who have no business being there. They hate people and don't know how to "manage" them except to constantly emotionally abuse them. Some of us walk away, others don't.
