The Christmas spirit was lacking on Christmas Eve at a Stock Island trailer park.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says the victim, 20, was playing Xbox games on his front porch in the trailer park at 6500 Maloney Avenue. For no apparent reason, a group of men showed up and began throwing bottles, cans -- and Christmas decorations -- at him.
Herrin said others in the trailer came out when they heard the commotion and "they all began to fight back as the suspects continued to throw things at them."
The Xbox player received five stitches in his head.
