A Muncie man is in prison after allegedly beating an acquaintance with a hammer.

Michael S. Hall is already charged in a string of instrument thefts on Ball State's campus.

Police say last night he smashed a 57-year-old man over the head with a hammer.

The man was taken to the hospital, where he refused to press charges.

Police have moved forward with their own battery with a deadly weapon charge against Hall.
