MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - A man accused of punching a former Minnesota State, Mankato, football player in the head and knocking him to the ground is free on bail.
Twenty-one-year-old Trevor Stenner Shelley, of St. Peter, was charged with two felony assault counts Wednesday after a weekend attack left the former Mavericks linebacker in critical condition. Shelley is due back in court May 22.
Police arrested Shelley after releasing video showing a man in a red shirt running from the scene as bars were closing early Sunday. A criminal complaint says witnesses identified Shelley as the man suspected of punching Isaac Dallas Kolstad.
Defense attorney Michael Padden tells KEYC-TV they'll argue self-defense.
Former Minnesota quarterback Philip Nelson was charged with two similar counts Monday. He is accused of kicking Kolstad in the head.
