Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) – A Rochester man was arrested early Tuesday after hitting a friend with a hammer.

A police spokesman says the two men got into an argument at the apartment of 59-year-old Sammie Miller. During the dispute, Miller grabbed a hammer and hit the 53-year-old victim over the head. The spokesman says Miller hit him so hard the hammer broke.

The victim and his wife left and called 911 around 1:30 AM and Miller was taken into custody on a felony assault charge.
