Md. Man Sentenced in Ax Attack

A Thurmont man was been sentenced Thursday to four years in prison for his involvement in the attack of an employee with a medieval-style ax and a drug operation.

Andrew Francis Scalera, 45, pleaded guilty in February to second-degree assault for the attack last year at his painting business on Jefferson Street, reports the Frederick News-Post.

Court records say Scalera struck the employee with the ax, cutting man's forearm to the bone.

Scalera also pleaded guilty to felony drug charges stemming from a December arrest.

Margaret Teahan, assistant public defender, says Scalera started dealing drugs to make Christmas money because his business dwindled after he was charged with assault.
