SANTA FE (AP) - Santa Fe police believe a Los Alamos National Laboratory whistleblower beaten outside a Santa Fe bar could have been attacked because he allegedly struck a pedestrian in the parking lot.
They do not believe the beating of Tommy Hook had anything to do with his status as a whistleblower.
Deputy Police Chief Eric Johnson says the investigation is leaning toward a fight in the parking lot leading to the beating Sunday.
