Man allegedly assaulted for second time after refusing attacker's apology for initial assault

A 21-year-old man is facing charges of aggravated assault after allegedly giving another man a concussion and cracked nose during a live show at Cafe Coco in Nashville, Tennessee.

According to the police affidavit, Austin Tice allegedly punched another man in the eye during the show. The victim then went to an adjacent hallway where Tice followed in an "attempt to apologise."

The victim told Tice he didn't want to be near him, given he had just been assaulted. The man says Tice then "became upset that his apology was refused" and punched the man in the eye again. The man told police he received medical attention the next day and had suffered a concussion and cracked nose from the assault.

Following the altercation, the man claims Tice posted "several messages on his Facebook wall and tagged" him. The affidavit states the messages were intimidating or threatening and the victim felt threatened by the messages. Tice, of Nashville, is facing charges of harassment and aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.

That guy seems crazy. Maybe they should keep him locked up.
