    Welch, 47, allegedly punched a man who asked for a drink from Welch’s bottle of vodka in front of the Moab Pizza Hut on Friday and then cracked open the man’s skull with a metal cane.

    He faces a felony count of aggravated assault and misdemeanor charges of intoxication and disorderly conduct.

    The restaurant manager called police June 12 after seeing Welch punch the man, and when he turned his back on the scene, he heard the cane strike the man. The blow resulted in a “pretty severe” laceration on the top of the victim’s head, according to the police report.

    Welch was apprehended in front of City Market.
