Three men charged after brawl at Greenfield graduation party
GREENFIELD, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Police say three men are facing battery charges after physically fighting a man at a graduation party in the city of Greenfield Sunday.
Damen A. Baldwin, 22, Alex McGeshick, 21, and Craig McGeshick, 22, face charges of Substantial Battery, Disorderly Conduct, and Obstructing an Officer, according to a criminal complaint.
According to the victim, the incident occurred at a party he attended with his wife and his wife's family, including the three suspects who he knows but does not see often.
The victim stated that during the party, the McGeshick brothers began physically fighting in the driveway.
When the victim tried to break it up, both brothers turned on him and began punching him in the face until he fell to the ground. They allegedly kicked him in the face and head repeatedly, as he tried to cover up and crawl away.
While still on the ground, Baldwin came outside and joined the brothers by grabbing and kicking him.
The victim had severe injuries to his face, including an eye swollen shut, a badly broken nose, and a fractured orbital bone.
All three suspects ran from the scene when police responded, and only Baldwin was initially caught.
Baldwin told police that there is animosity towards the victim because the family believes he was stealing money from them.
