A man said he was attacked while sitting outside of a Braselton restaurant.

Officers with the Braselton Police Department were called for the report of simple assault on Brassie Ln.

They found a man bleeding from his head and face.

He told officers he was outside sitting and waiting on a ride when three men approached him. One of them reportedly asked him about messing with a woman, but the man said he didn't know her.

That's when one of the men threw the alleged victim to the ground and began hitting him, according to the police report. The man hit him several times before knocking him out.

A med unit checked on the man, but he refused to be taken to the hospital.

There were no other witnesses.

The complainant said the only woman they know by the name the suspects were asking about is a regular, but wasn't there tonight. The complainant said the woman and several other people in the area are swingers and they may have had something to do with the alleged attack.


In another incident, BPD officers were called after a possible drunk driver nearly struck a pedestrian in a parking lot.

The suspect reportedly almost hit someone who was standing outside of a vehicle in a parking lot on Hwy. 211. He also reportedly nearly caused an accident when pulling onto Hwy. 211.

The complainant reportedly chased the man.

Officers said the suspect appeared to be heavily under the influence and he admitted to drinking. But officers didn't observe him operating a vehicle, so the man's wife was called to pick him up.
