An arrest has been made in connection with the assault from over the weekend that sent a man to a Nashville hospital with a fractured skull.
Arrested this morning around 8:15 was 20-year old Calvin McNeely of Hopkinsville, who police say admitted to striking 18-year old Brandon Gard of Hopkinsville over the head with a bottle.
McNeely is listed as an employee of the North Main Street Kangaroo Mart and the initial report indicates the disagreement between Gard and three suspects was over Gard returning items that had been stolen from that store. The arrest card says McNeely was angry Gard had been cooperating with police in a theft investigation.
Gard remains in Vanderbilt University Medical Center with a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain, while McNeely is lodged in the Christian County Jail on 1st degree assault and retaliating against a witness charges.
