BURLINGTON, N.C. – A man was arrested Tuesday after police say he assaulted another man with a cane and a cinder block during an altercation that ‘spurred over a barking dog’. That’s according to a report from WGHP.

Gwynn told police he attempted to stop the arguing by talking to the homeowner.

The homeowner, identified as Billy Lipscomb Jr., 34, then hit him with a cane, which caused him to lose consciousness, the report says.

When Gwynn regained consciousness, he punched Lipscomb in the nose and the two began to fight, police say.

Witnesses said that during the altercation, Lipscomb was on top of Gwynn and used a cinder block to hit Gwynn in the head and knock him unconscious again.
