A Harwood man was charged with assault Saturday after Anne Arundel County police said he got into a fight with another man over a piece of trash.

Witnesses said the victim threw a cup from his car Friday night outside a bar in Edgewater. Police said Timothy Zois, 47, then told the victim to pick up his trash and a fight ensued. During the scuffle, police said Zois pushed the victim to the ground, which caused the man hit his head on the pavement. Witnesses called police around 10:30 p.m. saying the man was bleeding and had lost consciousness.

Police later arrested Zois at his home in Harwood. He did not have an attorney listed in online court records.
