Bellmawr Man Assaulted at Jimmy Buffett Concert

Matthew Shields of Westville is being held on $50,000 bail after allegedly hospitalizing the victim with a sucker punch.

An alleged assault at Tuesday's Jimmy Buffett show at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden left one man in critical condition and landed another in jail.

According to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, Matthew Shields, 21, of Westville, sucker-punched a 20-year-old Bellmawr man in the back of the head in parking lot nine of the Center. The man subsequently struck his head on the pavement and was seriously injured.

Authorities say the two are acquainted.

Shields turned himself in to the Westville Police Wednesday morning as a warrant was being issued for his arrest. He was charged with aggravated assault and is currently being held in the Camden County correctional facility on $50,000 bail.

Detective Kevin Lutz of the Camden Police Department asks any witnesses to the act to contact him at 856-655-4750.

Seriously, there were people under the age of 60 at a Jimmy Buffet concert?

Low-hanging fruit, Porter. Shame on you.
