There shouldn't be no pay out, that man should have kept his mouth shut!  People get angry these days especially if you talking crap about their wife.

I bet he won't talk about someones wife again. You disrespect my wife you get knocked the f*** out.

Ole boy disrespected him and put his wife's name in his mouth and he knocked it back out of there. Violence really is never the answer but learn to quit provoking people. Hopefully, ole boy will take his ass whoopin and pay for his medical bills and pain and suffering compensation and let Columbus make it in the long run. He should be put on probation as well and learn to hopefully just walk away next time.
