Too many empty beer cans and one full one caused a big problem Sunday morning.

After a night of drinking with family members at a home in the 4000 block of North 20th Street, a relative hit a 43-year-old man with an unopened can of beer at about 1:15 a.m., Lincoln Police said.

The man fell to the ground unconscious, and his relative started kicking him, Lincoln Police Capt. Jim Davidsaver said. The alleged victim later needed four staples to close the wound in his head.

Police think they know who is responsible, but aren't releasing the person's name.
