A cyber-relationship between Samuel Campbell and Haley Fox began two years ago. When Campbell decided to take things to a more personal level, he drove from Alabama to Oregon to meet Fox, intending to live with her.
But, an affidavit says when Campbell arrived, Fox gave him a glass of wine then asked him to sit down and close his eyes. When he did, police said she cracked him in the head three times with a metal baseball bat, fracturing his skull.
Marion County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Chris Baldridge says Fox told investigators she smacked Campbell because “she did not want to be his girlfriend.”
Fox’s attorney Kevin Lafky told AL.com, “suffice it to say we completely disagree with the characterization of the facts that have been made by the sheriff's office."
Fox was arrested and charged with first-degree assault.
