JEFFERSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) A Jefferson County man is out of the hospital after he was nearly beaten to death.

Tim Brown was at his house when he was beaten with a baseball bat and a crowbar. Family say it was Browns girlfriend and her son, Shannon Green, who was charged with the assault.

The family says Brown was attacked because of loud music.

Browns younger brother, couldn't believe what happened. He says, "I freaked out, I, I immediately freaked out. I didn't know what to do."

Another family member told the brother that Brown had been beaten up. He says its a good thing someone said something.

"If someone hadn't come and told me, I don't know how we would've found him," says the brother, who didn't want to be identified.

Brown was taken to UT Medical Center. He is now recovering from the attack that almost took his life.
