Pair charged in bottle attack

MardreakusCounty deputies filed criminal complaints against a number of persons allegedly involved in physical attacks over the Thanksgiving weekend and in the days leading up to it.

One of the incidents sent Andrew Shaw, 25, of Sanderson to Fraser Hospital late on November 21 for treatment of lacerations to both of his hands and on his face, injuries he claimed resulted when he was hit repeatedly with a beer bottle.

Mr. Shaw told Deputy Patrick McGauley he was attacked by Mardreakus Ford, 19, of Sanderson and Arlee Givens, 20, of Macclenny about 11 pm outside the community center north of Sanderson on CR 229.

The two allegedly targeted him based on statements Mr. Shaw made to a female acquaintance concerning a third party.
