An arrest has been made in the fight last weekend in Edgewood that sent three to the hospital. Effingham County Deputies responded to a large scale fight on Sunday, January 31 at 12:38am at the Edgewood American Legion. When police arrived the subjects who instigated the fight had fled the scene.
Police have since arrested 21-year-old Dieterich resident Jacob White on the charge of Aggravated Battery. He remains incarcerated in the Effingham County Jail awaiting a bond hearing.
Three individuals were injured in the altercation, receiving non-life threatening knife wounds. Those injured are 50-year-old Mason resident Dale Dobson, 39-year-old Altamont resident Allen Hardiek, and 33-year-old Sean Wilson. Wilson is currently a resident of El Paso, Texas, but it formerly of Mason.
The Effingham County Sheriff’s Office says that further charges and arrests may be forthcoming as the investigation is ongoing.
