Man arrested in bar fight

Deputies arrested an Augusta man for beating another man with a pool cue at a local bar early this morning.

Frankie Russell Quale, 31, of 3188 Skinner Mill Road, is charged with aggravated battery after he and the 38-year-old victim got into an argument over a game of pool at the Cue and Brew at 252 Washington Road at about 1 a.m., a Richmond County Sheriff’s report said. The victim, Joseph Bradley Doran, was taken to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital and treated for a concussion and fractures to both his upper and lower jaw, the report said. He also suffered cuts to his upper lip that, according to the report, will require facial surgery to repair.
