MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a Mobile man was savagely beaten by several adults after reprimanding a group of children for playing basketball in the street.

Matthew Owens is in serious condition at the University of South Alabama Medical Center after police say a group of adults possibly armed with chairs, paint cans and baseball bats attacked the 40-year-old on Saturday night.
