Captain America Fan Goes All Thor On Two Victims, Police Charge

A Virginia man wearing a Captain America t-shirt--and not a Thor model--was arrested Tuesday evening for striking two victims in the head with a hammer, police report.

John Jefferson Tuggle, 36, is facing a pair of felony charges in connection with an incident at a residence near his home in Clinchburg.

According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Tuggle “went into another room of the residence and retrieved a hammer," which he then used to hit “both victims in the head.”

While investigators did not reveal a motive for the attack, they believe alcohol and drug use were a factor in the incident. The victims were transported to a local hospital, where they were both listed yesterday in stable condition.

Tuggle is being held without bond in the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail.
