ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A 31-year-old man surrendered himself to Angelina County authorities on Wednesday after he allegedly beat an employee with a stick after the man asked about his paycheck and said that he was going to quit his job.

Martin Shoel Brashear, of Huntington, was booked into the Angelina County Jail on a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He posted a $10,000 bail and was released later that day.

According to the arrest affidavit, the incident occurred on May 12. The victim told an ACSO deputy that he called Brashear, his boss, to ask about his pay check and was told that it would be later in the day before they would be ready.

Later that day, the victim showed up at the Shoel Brashear Trucking office located on Walker Road and asked about his check. Brashear allegedly told him, "I'll give you your check when I feel like it."

At that point, the victim called his wife, informed her about the situation, and told her that once he got his check, he would be quitting his job, according to the affidavit. Then the employee began taking his personal items out of his work truck and putting them in his personal vehicle.

When he finished with that task, the victim went to look for Brashear to tell his boss that he was quitting. The victim told the deputy that he was looking down when he spotted Brashear approaching.

After the victim was struck in the head, he fell to the ground, according to the affidavit. The victim looked up and allegedly saw Brashear swinging a large stick used to work livestock at him. The affidavit stated that Brashear struck the man several times on the hands and arms because the victim was trying to deflect the blows from his head.

According to the affidavit, the deputy, who interviewed the victim at the Memorial Hospital emergency room, noticed that the man had a large bump on his head that was about 3 inches long and stuck out about 2 inches. Both of the victim's arms were swollen, and he had a 2-inch cut on his forearm.

When the victim was taken for X-rays, medical personnel discovered that the man had a fractured right hand.

The deputy collected pictures of the victim's injuries and copies of the X-rays for evidence.
