Ship Battery

A crew member on a Honduran ship docked in Fort Pierce, Florida in the US has been charged with attacking a crew mate with an ax.

Fort Pierce police say Walter R. Bodden is charged with aggravated battery after the weekend attack aboard the Southern Relentless.

Police say Bodden and the victim got into a fight. Bodden allegedly grabbed the ax and hit the man in the head with its flat side before others wrestled it away. The victim was bleeding from the head and had two black eyes, but declined medical attention.
