Auburn man gets 18 months for baseball bat attack

AUBURN, Maine (AP) — An Auburn man has been sentenced to a year and a half in prison for using a baseball bat to hit a man during an argument over laundry.

Rasaun Hampton was sentenced after pleading guilty Wednesday in Androscoggin County Superior Court to aggravated assault.

Police say the 38-year-old Hampton hit Eric Wright in the kitchen of Wright's apartment in April. Hampton thought his clothes were being washed in Wright's apartment, but they were not.

The Sun Journal ( ) reports that witnesses say Hampton had been staying in an apartment above Wright's, and the resident of that apartment had taken Hampton's clothes to Wright's apartment to launder them, but had returned them.

Wright was hospitalized with a 3-inch cut above his left eye, a fractured skull and bleeding in his brain.
