Man arrested for battering with a table leg


Published:

BROOKSVILLE - A Geronimo Street man was arrested on charges of aggravated battery on Thursday after hitting a man in the arm with a wooden table leg.

David Alan McBurnett, 48, went to a Markham Lane house in Brooksville, where he struck the victim in the backyard over a "civil issue regarding the victim living at the residence," according to a Hernando County Sheriff's Office arrest affidavit.

Arriving deputies noted a contusion on the victim's elbow, typical of a blunt force injury.

McBurnett admitted to battering the man and was arrested on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He is being held at the Hernando County Jail on $5,000 bond.

Court and jail records do not indicate McBurnett has been arrested in the past.
