Beer-Bottle Attack Ends Up Saving Woman


Email this Story

Feb 9, 4:54 PM (ET)

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - A blow to the head with a beer bottle may have saved Sally Hampton's life. While doctors were examining her after the barroom attack, they discovered a brain tumor that could have killed her.

The tumor was removed, and Hampton, 64, is fully recovered.

On Monday, she testified against her attacker, Fidel Trujillo, who was convicted of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and sentenced to 12 1/2 years in prison.

"It was one of the worst things that could happen to an elderly person, but in the end it saved her life," prosecutor Erik Lombillo said.

Hampton was attacked July 4 at a bar in Immokalee, a farming town in southwestern Florida. According to prosecutors, she put her hand on Trujillo's shoulder to lead him out of the place when the bartender wanted to close up. Trujillo bashed her with a bottle and kicked her in the head and body when she fell.

Hampton was taken to Lehigh Regional Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening. During a test, doctors found the tumor.

I severely dislike Brittany Spears. She's so plastic, like a Barbie. It's disgusting.

I wont even go in to how awful her music is.

Oh, I can't stand her. I don't listen to her music. I just used the title of her song because the woman got HIT with a bottle. :)

Aww, Well, it's been a very, VERY rough year. I just found out that child support is bieng put on hold because my baby's Dad has another kid, and I'm missing my Mom a lot. Child support is the difference between a full time and a part time job, and how much time I get to spend with my kid. I'm sad.

It's a prison term for stabbing.

Ahh. Well maybe if he had stabbed her in the head? I'm not up on my prison terminology, other then not dropping your soap. ;)

No Pain no gain comes into play here, i believe.

if that would have happened to me (which is unlikely, for i am not 64 and don't plan on drinking ever) i would be lost as to be thankful for the guy bashing me on the head or to be angry he did.

I'd be thankful too, but I can see her wanting some money for her trouble, especially if she didn't have health insurance and what not. You don't ever plan on drinking?

Re: No Pain no gain comes into play here, i believe.

well, not really. if i were going to, i would be locked in my house by myself so that i don't make a complete fool of myself, or worse yet try to drive home semi-drunk.

but making a fool of yourself while drunk is the best part. many memories have been carved into me thanks to ethynol.

carved? eh. i don't like the sound of that, actually.

I have this weird thing where i hate being laughed at. it's devastating to me, but i wouldn't call it a social anxiety disorder

Well, if you were drinking by yourself that might be an issue, but it's never healthy to drink by yourself. That's why you want to have friends you can go out with and have a good time and laugh with them, not at anyone.

You can drink and then sober up before you drive. No one should ever drive drunk but there's a way to drink responsibly.
