Speaking of Backcountry Conservative, Jeff notes with a smile that Foster Barton’s attacker has been arrested. He quotes a local TV stations, thuly:

“Brent Cornwell, 28, of Blacklick, was arrested Tuesday night by Columbus police. He was charged with felonious assault Wednesday morning at a Delaware County Municipal Court video arraignment.

A judge set bond at $15,000. Cornwell was ordered to be on house arrest.

Foster Barton, 19, of Grove City, was on leave from the war in Iraq earlier this month when he said he was beaten in the parking lot after a Toby Keith concert at Germain Amphitheater.

Barton said his attacker beat him up because he was wearing an Operation Iraqi Freedom T-shirt.”

I can only shake my head and ask again what someone so opposed to the war in Iraq was doing at a Toby Keith Concert…. Toby’s been quite vocal about supportout our actions and our troops.
