    A 43-year-old Texas man is dead after a fight with an employee of a Missouri fast-food restaurant.

    Gregory Stanley of Vidor, Texas, died Wednesday, three days after he was injured in a fight at a Hardee's restaurant in the northeast Missouri town of Hannibal.

    Police were called to the restaurant Sunday afternoon.

    Witnesses told officers that Stanley was verbally abusive to employees and patrons of the business, leading to a fight between Stanley and employees.

    New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    Police say surveillance video showed 33-year-old Damien Fugate striking Stanley, including twice after Stanley fell to the floor.

    Fugate is charged with second-degree assault and it isn't immediately clear if prosecutors will upgrade the charge now that Stanley has died. Fugate does not have a listed attorney.
