A Florida Keys man was arrested and a second man was taken to the hospital following a poker game that turned ugly on Thursday morning in Marathon, Florida Keys. Deputies were called to the scene about 2 a.m. and met up with the victim's brother outside the house, where the poker game was taking place.
The man informed deputies that his brother had been hit in the head with an empty Corona beer bottle. He warned them to enter the house alone because there were a lot of people "acting crazy."
When deputies entered the house, they found the victim covered in blood, sitting just inside the door. They also found broken bottles and blood trails throughout the house. The victim and other poker players identified Isaac Vargas, 21, as the attacker. The victim was taken to Fishermen's Hospital where received numerous staples to close two wounds in his head. Vargas, a roomate of the victim, now faces a charge of aggravated battery - which is punishable by up to one year in the county jail.
