Police: Drunk killed friend who offered him a ride

SHARPSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges that he was drunk and killed his friend during a fight after the other man offered the suspect a ride home from a social club.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 36-year-old Fred Earl Abbott, of Sharpsville, who faces a preliminary hearing July 11 on charges of involuntary manslaughter, simple assault and public drunkenness.

Sharpsville police tell The (Sharon) Herald ( ) that Abbott drank about a dozen beers on Friday before driving himself to the local American Legion where he had three or four more beers before the bartender shut him off hat night.

Police say several people offered to drive Abbott home, including 50-year-old Charles Frederick, who recently had heart surgery.

Instead, police say Abbott kneed Frederick in the abdomen, which led to his death.
