Mikey Graham, of Boyzone fame, confronted a man being a nuisance at his home, and allegedly hit him so hard that other man was left with swelling in the brain.
The 22-year-old victim was “extremely lucky” doctors told him. Worse injuries could have easily been sustained in the incident that left him with “very intense” trauma.
Graham, according to his closest friends, said he was going to be leaving his home in Spain to return to Ireland to see what was needed from him in conjunction with the fallout from the altercation that took place at Graham’s €1m mansion ‘Avalon,’ located at Courtlough, Balrothery, north Co Dublin. Even though this happened at the singer’s home it is not considered domestic violence.
Beaumont Hospital doctors treated the victim’s head injury for six days in intensive care.
A New York Criminal Lawyer uncovered some of the details of the victim’s injury: “Before he was released late on Friday afternoon, [the 22-year-old] was told by medical staff at the St Luke’s unit of Beaumount Hospital that he had suffered from a general swelling of the brain. He was told that he was extremely lucky not to have been left needing an operation or intensive physiotherapy.”
The attacked man was still shaken and pale when he sat up and talked with doctors at the end of last week. His mother and other family members were at his bedside, and they have been charged by doctors to keep a close eye on their loved one while he recovers in the weeks ahead. Doctors suspect that he will need treatment for his brain injury in the future. He returned to his home in north Dublin to recover.
While the victim was being treated, the music star went to his home in Nerja, Spain, a fishing village on the seashore about 50km from Malaga, on the eastern tip of Malaga’s Costa del Sol, supposedly for business purposes.
New York Criminal Law Offices uncovered some of the specifics of the incident: “The Boyzone singer apparently responded to incessant ringing of his front gate buzzer; he left his home via the back door of the property carrying a cricket bat. When he reached the front gate, he crouched behind a wall. When the intercom went off again, the singer swung the bat, injuring the 22-year-old.” One of the star’s friends said, “He (Graham) says he was absolutely terrified. He was frightened for his own safety and for that of his family. He just wanted to protect his home. He thought they (the men) could have been armed and felt he had to take action to protect his family.” The singer’s wife and daughter were in the house at the time of the incident. This kind of incident is common in Manhattan as well as Nassau County.
It is unclear if this incident is related to an earlier incident that occurred at the Man O’ War tavern.
