An 18-year-old Waynoka man is hospitalized in Wichita, Kan., after a man threw acid on him in Woods County.

Woods County Deputy Steve Ward says Nathan Lyon suffered burns to his head, torso and arms after 32-year-old Jason Nelson threw the acid on him Sunday night.

Lyon's condition was not available.

Ward says Lyon had challenged Nelson to a fight over a text message Nelson sent to a girl and the two agreed to meet in a rural area north of Waynoka.

Ward says as the two men got out of their cars Nelson threw the acid from a vase-like container.

Nelson is being held in the Woods County jail on $150,000 bond.
