OWS Protester Assaults Man with Hammer, Striking Him in Head

A man was rushed to Maine Medical Center's emergency room early Friday morning after an Occupy Wall Street protester struck him in the head with a hammer. The victim was in the hospital for several hours, was treated, and then released.

According to police, the assault happened after the victim was playing drums loudly at Occupy Maine. Chris Schisler, 34, took exception to the drums, approached the man, and, after a brief argument, hit him in the head with a hammer.
Witnesses stated that the man started playing drums at seven in the morning, waking fellow protesters up and demanding that they clean up the park they were in. Schisler became agitated and told him to stop. When the victim refused, Schisler first smashed his drum and then quickly struck him in the head.

Schisler was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. His bail is set at $10,000.
