Authorities say he kicked 24-year-old Isaac Dallas Kolstad in the head early Sunday as bars were closing in Mankato.
The kick came after Kolstad had been punched and knocked to the ground by another man, who remains at-large.
Kolstad is a former linebacker at Minnesota State, Mankato. He is in critical condition. According to the criminal complaint, doctors are not sure he will survive.
