Man sues Detour resident, alleging assault in N.Y.

April 19, 1999

A Hagerstown man who attended a Civil War re-enactment in New York last summer has sued William Wickham, accusing the Detour man of assaulting him.

Michael B. Wicklein, whose company is Video Vision of Hagerstown, seeks $200,000 in damages for alleged assault and battery in a civil case filed last week in Carroll County Circuit Court. It names as sole defendant "William `Dirty Billy' Wickham," of the 7500 block Middleburg Road in Detour.

According to the lawsuit, Wickham became angry and struck Wicklein in the face and body July 18 in Genesee Village, near Rochester, N.Y.

Neither Wicklein nor Wickham could be reached for comment.
