    Bat, Trimmer, Hammer Used in Lawn Brawl

    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.

    People just cannot seem to grasp the fact that messing with an outdoor worker when it is hot out is not too bright of an idea. Heat seems to shorten the fuse.
