After Parking Dispute, Man Beaten With His Own Bat

Last Wednesday, in the midst of an argument over where he'd parked his Jeep, Virlyn Watson grabbed a bat, then threw it at the man he was arguing with. That man dodged the bat, then picked it up and beat Watson with it.

The incident, which occurred around 1:45 in the afternoon on the 2800 block of NW 19th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale, left Watson in critical condition. Now police are looking for the assailant, shown in the surveillance shot to the right.
