Two men accused in the crowbar-beating of a man have been arrested, each on a charge of aggravated assault, Sheriff Mike Byrd said this morning.

Earl Ray Justice Sr., 34, of Vancleave, and Vertis Raymond, 27, of Biloxi, are accused of beating a man after he shouted for them to quit speeding near Jean Street and Masterson Avenue on Thursday.

After their arrests, the two suspects were taken to the Jackson County jail pending bond hearings. The victim was taken to Ocean Springs Hospital for treatment.
