A Chico man lost a finger in street fight in Chico. Police report that suspect Colby Thompson struck the victim with a metal pipe and severed his little finger.
Witnesses told police the fight started when Thompson got into a physical fight with his girlfriend outside of West First Avenue and North Cedars Street.
Thompson walked away from the argument with his girlfriend in a rage, yelling and challenging anyone to fight him.
The 34-year-old victim was outside with his wife and child. He originally grabbed the metal pipe to defend himself from Thompson. Thompson was able to wrestle the metal pipe from the victim and struck him with it.
Thompson fled the scene but turned himself in and was arrested by Chico police four hours later.
