What initially was thought to be an assault during Sunday's Hilton Head Island St. Patrick's Day Parade turned out to be a medical complaint.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office initially reported a man was assaulted and found unconscious along the parade route. He was taken by ambulance to Hilton Head Hospital. However, Sgt. Robin McIntosh said Monday the man had not been assaulted; he had a medical issue, said there was no assault and did not wish to file a report.
