Six Facing Felony Charges for December Fight in Buckhannon

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. — Police have now charged six people in connection to a fight on Camden Avenue in Buckhannon last month.

Five face charges of aiding and abetting malicious assault, but one West Virginia Wesleyan student is charged with malicious assault after using a hammer to injure a man.

Jackson Dalton Tyler, 21, of Cross Lanes could face no less than two years and no more than ten years in prison if found guilty.

The injured man, Robert Brunswick, is not a student. Buckhannon Police Chief Matt Gregory did not disclose the extent of the injuries, but did say Brunswick was treated at an area hospital and has since been released.

The altercation began late on the night of December 4 and spilled into the early morning hours of December 5 when Robert Brunswick’s twin brother William got into an altercation at a bar with Dawson Jakob Shreiner, 23, of Leesburg, Florida.

Several of the suspects are members of Kappa Alpha Fraternity on the campus of West Virginia Wesleyan College.

All suspects are free after posting bond during their arraignment last Friday according to Gregory.
