Doña Ana County, NM (KTSM) — A Doña Ana County man was arrested Saturday after he allegedly beat his supervisor with a galvanized steel pipe while on the job.
George Malone, 55, had allegedly been arguing with his supervisor for several days when the argument turned violent Saturday afternoon. Doña Ana County Sheriff's Deputies were called to a construction site in the 7600 block of Stern, where they found Malone and his alleged victim.
