Argument over obscene photos leads to broken jaw

TRI-CITY HERALD STAFFNovember 18, 2013 

An argument over obscene Facebook photos left a Pasco man with a broken jaw.

The 23-year-old victim said he was punched in the face several times Sunday morning by Casey R. Brockman, said Sgt. Ken Lattin. Brockman was upset because the victim told a mutual female friend that Brockman posted pictures of his private parts on the woman's Facebook page.

The posting of the obscene photos happened a month ago, Lattin said. When the victim showed up to Brockman's house, the 28-year-old allegedly punched him.

The victim was treated at Trios Health for a broken jaw, police said. Brockman told officers it was the victim's fault for telling the woman he posted the pictures.

Brockman was reportedly intoxicated, Lattin said. He refused to give officers a statement and was booked into the Benton County jail on suspicion of second-degree assault.
