    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- St. Johns County authorities said a Hollywood man is under arrest for using an aluminum bat to beat a man working for him on a landscaping crew.

    Sheriff's officials said Lance Wamley, 26, confronted Eric Torres, 23, because Wamley didn't like the way he was cutting grass.

    Witnesses said the two got in a fight that a co-worker broke up. Authorities said Wamley went to his truck and came back with the bat. He allegedly threatened Torres and another co-worker who tried to intervene.

    According to police, Torres was hit several times in his chest, the back of his head and his arm before a co-worker took a hammer and stood between the two. Torres was taken to a hospital for treatment.

    Wamley is charged with aggravated battery and aggravated assault with deadly intent.
