Grall, 23, of Janesville was taken into custody and charged with two counts of battery, including two hate crime enhancers for punching two men speaking in Hebrew, the Channel3000 dot com reported. Grall noticed the men around 2:19 a.m. speaking a foreign language at the 200 block of N. Henry St. and ordered them to speak in English. He then sucker punched both men.
Grall admitted to police that he demanded for the men to talk in English, but denied that he ever punched them. One man suffered a swollen eye (black eye) and the other was just knocked to the ground.
