Sorry Bruce Dickinson, But the Egg Bowl Needs Less Cowbell

↵

↵Mississippi State took the Egg Bowl back in November and a joyous celebration ensued on the field. Well, joyous for some, but certainly not all: ↵

↵
↵⇥STARKVILLE — Authorities have charged a Mississippi State University student with assault for hitting another student with a cowbell after the Egg Bowl in November. ↵⇥

↵⇥MSU Police Department Sgt. Brad Massey tells the Starkville Daily News that 23-year-old Brett Morgan Vowell of Columbus turned himself in Wednesday and was released on $5,000 bond. ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Massey says Vowell has been charged with aggravated assault. [...] Police say the victim suffered a severe head wound after being struck in the head with a cowbell after an argument. The victim hasn’t been identified. ↵⇥

↵We're not supposed to laugh at physical harm to others, but the use of a cowbell to assault another human being has to make you chuckle. Hopefully there was no long-lasting effect, other than maybe a little ringing for a day or two. (Get it? Because it's a cowbell!) Also, it allows us to link to this clip again. ↵
