Eddy County Sheriff's Report

New Rockford resident Joseph M. Lawrence has been sentenced and fined for attacking a man during a Valentine’s Day weekend bar fight.

At the scene, evidence was gathered from eyewitnesses, a video of the altercation, and investigation by Eddy County Deputy Bennett Sauve on February 13 - such as blood on Lawrence’s right hand “consistent with him being the assailant in the bar attack.”
