Man Arrested After Fight At Fayetteville Bowling Alley
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – A 20-year-old man was taken into custody in Fayetteville early Sunday (Feb. 22) after police say he attacked two people at a local bowling alley.
Kyle Wyatt was booked into the Washington County Detention Center and faces several charges, including second-degree battery, after an incident at Ozark Bowling Lanes at 2300 College Ave., according to a court document.
A woman at the scene told police Wyatt punched her in the face, and a man said the suspect headbutted him, knocking his tooth out, the document states.
The incident started when Wyatt made comments about a man’s homosexual friends, the document states.
In addition to a second-degree battery charge, Wyatt also faces charges of public intoxication, loitering, unlawful use of a license and being a minor in possession of alcohol, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office website. He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
Wyatt, a pole vaulter, was on the University of Arkansas track-and-field team roster in the spring of 2014 but has not been a part of the program this academic year, a university official said.
