SNELLVILLE, Ga. (AP) _ An armless artist has turned himself in to Snellville to face a charge related to a fight with a man who later died.
William Russell Redfern of Tucker is free on a bond of $1,213 after turning himself in Tuesday on a misdemeanor charge of affray.
Redfern was born with no right arm and only a short stump for his left arm. Police say Redfern head-butted and kicked Charles Keith Teer during a fight September 17th over a woman. Teer, who allegedly struck Redfern, complained of dizziness and collapsed shortly afterwards.
A medical examiner determined last week that Teer likely died of a heart attack.
Snellville Police Chief Roy Whitehead says investigators decided against felony charges but felt Redfern should be punished.
Whitehead says the misdemeanor charge is likely the only legal action Redfern will face.
Known by the nickname ``Rusty,'' Redfern made a name for himself in the late 1980s for pen and ink drawings he does using his foot.
