Homeless men scuffle over free-meal line jumping

Skipping ahead in a line for a free meal earns a homeless man a beating on July 28.

A 65-year-old man was apparently eager to get something to eat. He jumped in the line ahead of a 72-year-old man.

Robert Reever wasn't having that, so he jumped back in front of the younger man. Reever then attacked the 65-year-old after they got their food.

The younger man says he didn't fight back because of the suspect's age. Reever was charged with battery.

He's accused of pushing the younger man, causing his head to hit the wall, scratching his face and slapping him.
