Man hit with indictment for striking man with pool stick – Beaumont Enterprise


A man has been indicted for allegedly hitting another man with a pool stick during a bar fight earlier this year in Port Neches.

A Jefferson County Grand Jury in mid-November indicted the 27-year-old Jasper man with second-degree aggravated assault.

According to court documents, the Port Neches Police Department received a call reporting the assault shortly after 11 p.m. on Oct. 9 at the Riverside Tavern, located at 2354 Grigsby Ave. in Port Neches.

Officers were told that a man had been struck with a pool cue stick. A caller described the man who allegedly hit him and said he was walking toward a nearby restaurant, The Feed Store.


Officers where they spoke with two people at The Feed Store, including one who they say matched the description of the assailant.

The 27-year-old advised police that he had been inside the Riverside Tavern drinking at the bar when he and another man began arguing, the affidavit said.

“One of (his) friends then escorted him outside the bar to avoid further conflict,” court documents said. “(The man) advised that due to his level of intoxication, he re-entered the bar, located the other male subject, grabbed a pool cue stick, and struck the other male subject in the head with the cue stick.”

“The other subject sustained a laceration to the upper right forehead,” the information continued. “Several subjects at the bar confirmed the story as (the man) described.”

The 27-year-old was arrested and taken the Jefferson County Jail in Beaumont, the affidavit said.
