Man arrested for felony assault but claims innocence

A man from Nashua has been arrested following an altercation with a second man that caused a serious injury. The reports are saying that the problem began when the first man was trying to leave the building where he lived, and the second man was in his way. Apparently, that second man was intoxicated. The two had never met before.

When the allegedly intoxicated man finally got out of the way, an argument ensued. This resulted in the sober man throwing the other one over a concrete barrier. He apparently fell about a distance of six steps. When the second man struck the ground below, he suffered numerous injuries, including a broken arm, busted ribs, a broken back, and an injury to his head.

In fact, the head injury was so serious that he had to be moved to a new medical center after he was first transported from the scene. He initially went to the Southern New Hampshire Medical Center, but the medical crews then had him moved down to Massachusetts General Hospital.

The man who allegedly threw the drunk man over the railing is 46 years old. He has been given felony charges, which are specifically for second-degree assault.

However, the man who has been charged has said that it was not his fault, and that all he did was say he would call the authorities. He has said that the man who had been blocking the door then threw a punch at him, that he ducked that punch, and that he may have bumped the man when he stood back up again.

As can be seen, very different accounts can come out of the same incident, so people who have been given felony charges must know their legal options.
