[UPDATED:] Man Convicted of Killing Bar Patron With Pool Cue
Thompson, who was convicted on one felony count of involuntary manslaughter by an unlawful act, had started an argument over a beer with 44-year-old Steven Toole at Breaker's on March 17, 2008.
During the bar fight, Toole pushed Thompson to the floor. Standing up, Thompson grabbed a nearby pool cue and swung it at Toole, striking him once in the head with the fat end. Toole immediately collapsed.
The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he was placed on life support and died the next day.
