MASON CITY – A Mason City man accused of felony assault was exonerated by a jury last week.

Greg Allan Hodak, 47, was arrested on April 6th, 2012 and charged with willful injury (708.4(1)), a class C felony, after being accused of assaulting 52 year-old Mike Harrer on the evening of September 17th, 2011 at Spike’s Bar, 18 7th Street SE.  “Officers responded to fight call at Spikes Bar,” the police report said. “A subject was severely injured during the altercation.  He was transported to Mercy Hospital East Campus by M.C.F.D.”

Harrer spent considerable time recovering from the altercation in Mercy Hospital.  It was said he had seven broken ribs, two broken eye sockets, and numerous lacerations.  Hodak left the scene on his motorcycle before police arrived.

A twelve person jury in Cerro Gordo County found Hodak not guilty of the charge on March 29th, 2012.  The case was prosecuted by the Iowa Attorney General’s Office.
