MAN ASSAULTS ANOTHER MAN WITH BASEBALL BAT AND IS ARRESTED
Timmy Wayne Gann
The Sheriff’s Office has arrested 45 year old TIMMY WAYNE GANN of rural Mountain Home on a felony charge of Aggravated Assault after deputies responded to a disturbance call early Sunday evening.
At approximately 5:30 PM Sunday, Sheriff’s Corporal Kristofer Savino was dispatched to 41 Glenbriar Place for a 911 call reporting a man being assaulted by another man with a baseball bat.
Upon arrival at the scene, Corporal Savino found a bloodied male victim and called for an ambulance and emergency medical personnel. An eyewitness told Corporal Savino that a suspect, found to be TIMMY WAYNE GANN, had pulled up at the victim’s residence in a blue Ford Ranger pickup, then go out with a baseball bat, approached the victim, and then began fighting with the victim, including striking him with the bat. The victim was alert but had sustained injuries to his head and upper body. The victim was transported to Baxter Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.
Corporal Savino took TIMMY GANN into custody at the scene. The baseball bat was found near GANN’s vehicle and taken into evidence. Statements from various parties indicated the dispute between GANN and his victim had something to do with the outcome of a football game.
TIMMY WAYNE GANN was transported to the Baxter County Detention Center. He was booked on one felony charge of Aggravated Assault. He is being held in lieu of $10,000 bond, and he will appear in Circuit Court to answer on October 16th.
