Police: Man beaten with two-by-four

CLARK COUNTY — A New Albany man has been charged with multiple felonies for severely beating another man with a two-by-four last week, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Damon M. Arnold, 39, of 524 Culbertson Ave., appeared in Clark County Circuit Court No. 4 Monday, at which time Judge Vicki Carmichael set his bond at $75,000 cash-only. According to a report filed by a Clark County sheriff’s deputy, the man Arnold is charged with assaulting knows him, as he had dated Arnold’s cousin.

The deputy was provided details of the assault from the victim as he was lying in a bed at Clark Memorial Hospital shortly after midnight Jan. 24. The man was taken to the hospital for the injuries he sustained during the assault that took place in a Clarksville business about 9:30 p.m. the night before.

The man told the deputy that Arnold had come to his home after asking him he would help move some firewood. He told Arnold that he would, and Arnold showed up at the man’s home on East 13th Street in New Albany in a black Isuzu Trooper. Two women were present at the man’s home, according to statements the man made to the deputy, when he left with Arnold. Arnold then took the man to a garage located in the 1300 block of Emery Crossing in Clarksville.

Deputies were not able to provide the name of the business and said it may operate without an official name.

The man told the deputy that there were four to five men also in the garage when he and Arnold arrived. According to the report, Arnold then began yelling at the man and said that he had physically hurt his cousin that he had dated. The man told the deputy that the group of men surrounded him and preventing him from leaving by blocking a door.
