FOUNTAIN HILLS, AZ - Sheriff's deputies have arrested two men from Fountain Hills for their alleged involvement in an attack on a man in California last month.
According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, Bryan Scott Hale, 24, and Brett Davis, 25, were in Los Angeles doing work for a moving company when after drinking in a bar on Santa Monica Boulevard they allegedly randomly attacked a man out exercise-walking with weights in the early morning hours of September 22.
The 45-year-old victim was beaten with the exercise weights and suffered a collapsed skull, several brain bleeds, a broken jaw and neck and back fractures, authorities said. He is expected to survive, but doctors say long term effects from the beating are very possible.
MCSO deputies received information from the Santa Monica Police Department about one of the suspects, but did not have information on the second one.
Authorities say MCSO deputies conducted surveillance and were able to identify the second man and arrest both suspects.
Both were booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail on attempted murder charges. They are expected to be extradited to Los Angeles within the next few days and are being held on a bond of over $1 million.
MCSO said the name of the victim, a movie producer, was not made available.
