EASTON, Md. – An Easton man is being held at the Talbot County Detention Center after police say he beat another man unconscious.

According to the Easton Police Department, Nathaniel Hollinger, 21, was charged Tuesday with attempted second degree murder, assault, reckless endangerment and possession of a dangerous weapon with the intent to injure after an incident early that morning.

Police say at around 12:35 a.m. Tuesday they responded to an assault in progress in the 7200 block of Shirley Drive in Easton. Upon arrival, officers saw a man, later identified as a 55-year-old with the last name Evans, lying face down on the ground, unconscious and bleeding from his head.

Officers say a bat was lying on the ground next to the victim. Hollinger was found further down the street in the middle of a crowd with blood on him, according to police.

Investigation revealed Hollinger, Evans and a third person had been drinking at Evans’ house when Hollinger hit Evans on the head with a bottle during an argument. When Hollinger left, police say Evans grabbed a bat and another assault took place outside the home.

Evans was flown to Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore to be treated for a skull fracture, a head laceration and a broken nose. Police say he is currently in stable condition.

Hollinger was charged and ordered to be held on $50,000 bond.
