A wrestling match that got out of hand ended with one man in jail and another in the hospital.
Jacob LaMere, 22, of Butte faces a felony aggravated assault charge after police say he beat a man into unconsciousness early Wednesday. Undersheriff George Skuletich said the adult victim remained hospitalized Wednesday at St. James HealthCare.
Police say the two men were involved in a wrestling match while at a residence in the 200 block of S. Jackson Street. The contest escalated into a serious fight and LaMere is accused of punching the other man several times.
Police reported a female in the residence tried to break up the fight and was struck by LaMere in the process. She wasn't seriously injured. LaMere also faces a possible misdemeanor charge of partner or family member assault.
