A warrant alleges Hamm, 38, randomly punched the Tootsie’s employee in the head, causing him to fall to the ground and lose consciousness.

Another employee told police the victim was unconscious for at least one minute, according to the police report.

Hamm was booked into the Metro jail early Thursday morning on a charge of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury. His bond was set at $5,000.

The police report states Hamm had also been issued misdemeanor citations earlier in the day for assaulting two Tootsie’s employees.

No additional information was released about that attack.
