Argument over LeBron spurs Ohio jailhouse fight

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) – LeBron James’s return to Cleveland is a hot topic just about everywhere.

Authorities say a northern man convicted of killing a 3-year-old boy ended up with a broken nose in a jailhouse fight that started with an argument over the NBA star’s return to Cleveland.

The Sandusky Register reports that 25-year-old Michael Milner was treated for injuries following the fight in the Erie County jail on Friday. The 19-year-old inmate who allegedly punched him likely will face charges.

Authorities say the two squared off on the basketball court not long after James announced he would return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The two had argued about James earlier in their pod.

Surveillance footage from the recreation area shows the men playing basketball before punches were exchanged.
