Salisbury Police charged a Spencer man with felony assault after he was accused of hitting his ex-wife’s husband over the head with a beer mug.

David Todd Lomax, 43, of the 1000 block of Fourth Street, is charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. He was issued a $500 secured bond and has since been released from the Rowan County jail.

The incident occurred Monday just before 2 a.m. at Nashville Nights, a police report said.

Police were called to the emergency department at Novant Health Rowan Medical Center to investigate an assault. The victim, Bryon Robinson, 44, said he was assaulted by his wife’s ex-husband while at the bar.
