Athens Man Punches Window, Bleeds to Death

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say an Athens man bled to death after punching out a window at a former girlfriend's apartment.

Police say they found 37-year-old Elmario Rayshawn Griffith bleeding profusely from his arm shortly before 4 a.m. Tuesday.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports that Griffith was still conscious, but would not tell officers what had happened.

Investigators determined that at some point during a dispute with the former girlfriend, Griffith punched a window and severed an artery.

He was taken to St. Mary's Hospital, where he later died.

Athens-Clarke police Capt. Clarence Holeman said no foul play is suspected in the death.
