(Updated at 4:00 p.m. on 10/6/10) Correction: This incident was initially reported to be an assault. The man appeared to have injuries to his face consistent with an assault. However, police now say the man was drunk, implying that this was likely an accident.

It happened Tuesday afternoon on the 4300 block of North Henderson Road, two blocks from Ballston Common Mall.

The man was ultimately able to walk out of the apartment building on his own power. His face bloodied and swollen, he was put on a stretcher, placed in an ambulance and taken to the hospital.

    That’s odd–never heard of something that violent in Buckingham area.

    Things aren’t always as they first seem. What is first perceived as something criminal and horrific can often turn out to be a mundane, accidental injury… especially if alcohol is a factor(!)…..

    what is going on in this town today? sheesh.

  • No crime

    This was not a beating. You jumped to conclusions before all the facts were stated (or heard rather).
