Man injured in fight released from hospital
Christopher Alan Bosley of Westminster, who was allegedly struck in the head with an ax handle wielded by his half-brother, Robert Lee Wiles, after leaving a dance in Gamber last month, was released from the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore on Oct. 12.
Police reported that Mr. Wiles got into an argument with his girlfriend after leaving a dance at the Gamber Fire Hall early in the morning of Sept. 27. The girlfriend dropped Mr. Wiles off on Niner Road after the argument, returned to the dance and told Mr. Bosley about the argument, police said.
Police said Mr. Bosley, 23, of East Main Street in Westminster, took an ax handle from the trunk of his car and drove off to find his half-brother. A fight ensued, police said, and Mr. Wiles allegedly hit Mr. Bosley with the ax handle.
Mr. Wiles was later arrested and charged with assault and battery.
