Man wanted for beating another man with baseball bat

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Richmond County deputies are looking for a man they say beat another man with a baseball bat during an argument over money.

Shane Champagne, 44, also known as Yank Neck, is accused of beating the victim, breaking his arm and cracking several ribs, according to an incident report from the sheriff's office.

Champagne showed up at the victim's house on Schely Street at about 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 16, according to the report. Champagne told the victim that he would beat him to death if he didn't pay the $100 he owed him.

The victim told deputies Champagne hit him 10 to 15 times with a metal baseball bat, according to the report. The victim was transported to Trinity Hospital.

Medical staff at the hospital told deputies that the victim's left arm was fractured, his ribs were cracked, his lung was punctured, according to the report. He also had a laceration to the back of his head.

The victim was transferred to Georgia Regents University due to the severity of his injuries. 

Deputies say Champagne was last seen driving a red Mitsubishi Mighty Max pickup truck with Georgia tag PFK2731. Deputies say he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about Champagne's whereabouts can call the Richmond County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division at 706-821-1020 or 706-821-1080.
