More Cowbell! Well, Maybe Not That Much

A Mississippi man is spending weekends in jail and has to pay a $500 fine, his punishment for hitting a fellow university student over the head with a cowbell. Apparently they had a disagreement over the song Blue Oyster Cult song “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper.” Just kidding. Perhaps it was over a bad Christopher Walken impression? Not! 

The 2 men were University of Mississippi students when the incident happened at an event called the “Egg Bowl” back in 2009. Brent Vowell was initially charged with felony aggravated assault, but he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of misdemeanor simple assault. Matthew Brasher, the victim of the “cowbelling” suffered a 4 inch laceration in the incident, and may also be named along with some university officials as defendants in a civil suit.
