    This may be off topic but it has some "employee managment" skill's ...

    FRUIT COVE, Fla. — The supervisor went for a bat. The employee whipped out a weed trimmer. Another worker used a hammer to break up the fight.

    That’s the scene St. Johns County authorities described Tuesday after a lawn service supervisor criticized one of his worker’s grass-cutting skills, The Florida Times-Union reported.

    Lance Tywan Wamley, 26, of Hollywood, Fla., is charged with threatening several men with a 34-inch baseball bat and then hitting one man in the chest. The worker, Eric J. Torres, 23, defended himself with a weed trimmer, authorities said.

    Another worker, armed with a hammer, broke up the scuffle, authorities said.

    Torres was treated at a hospital. Wamley was charged with felony assault and battery. Information on his legal representation was not available Thursday.
