Marathon (CBSMiami) – An argument over beer led to a one man to attack another with a hatchet in Marathon.
According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, on Friday 32-year old Maykel Borges was hanging around at the Trailerama Trailer Park on 15th Street and asking for beer. The park’s residents said they gave him several beers during the course of the day then told him to leave.
Borges did, but later returned with a hatchet. He then reportedly began arguing with people at the trailer park, and at one point reportedly swung the hatchet at one man, cutting him on the side with it. Borges then dropped the weapon and ran.
When deputies arrived just after 6 p.m., they found the hatchet and tracked down Borges at his own trailer, not far away. He was arrested, charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery, and he was booked into jail.
The victim was transported to Fishermen’s Hospital for treatment of a small cut on his side.
