A weekend fight at a Gordon Highway night spot left a 28-year-old man hospitalized in critical condition.

According to a media release from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, investigators responded to a call at Pure Platinum, 2064 Gordon Highway, at 3:47 a.m. Sunday and found Phillip Boynton severely injured.

Witnesses told them Boynton, of D Court in Olmstead Homes, had been escorted from the club for being intoxicated and arguing with patrons. Once outside he tried to start a fight in the parking lot with a patron and received a head injury. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition, according to the release. The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed at this time, police said.

Yep triscuit

The ER's are busy on the weekends with cuts, bruises, busted noses, heads, etc. on low income people who will never pay a dime for the care received. It is against the law to turn them away.

Nacho, for the record, I

Nacho, for the record, I didn't say anything about your relative; I hope he recovers with no ill effects.

My point was to the original poster to agree that the public foots the medical bill for a lot of folks who find money to party, but can't pay the bill when the party goes bad.
