Lincoln Man Killed

-A late night vandalism turned deadly for one Lincoln man. It happened around midnight Saturday. Police say three Lincoln men were driving around northeast Lincoln, smashing mailboxes with golfclubs. Things went bad quickly when they noticed the backseat passenger, 21-year-old, Brian Brinker, bleeding with a two and a half inch hole in the right side of his head. A LPD officer says the head of the golf club came off on the backswing and it came back and hit Brinker in the backseat and penetrated his skull. The men rushed Brinker to Bryan LGH-East…where he later passed away. Brinker's cousin, 23-year-old, Scott Philips was arrested for second degree assault…and will now likely face a manslaughter charge. The driver of the car has not been cited for anything.
