Man charged with assaulting unconscious man outside Ann Arbor bar
An Ann Arbor man has been criminally charged with punching an unconscious man in the head during an argument outside a South University Avenue bar in October, Ann Arbor police Det. Dave Monroe said.
Bryan Mitchell Fisher, 28, is charged with assault with intent to commit great bodily harm less than murder and aggravated assault, Washtenaw County court records show.
He was arraigned Wednesday in 15th District Court and has been released on a personal recognizance bond, Monroe said.
According to Monroe, Fisher punched the victim at least five times on Oct. 9 outside Good Time Charley's, where people were watching the Michigan-Michigan State football game. A dispute began inside the bar and continued outside and involved about four people, Monroe said.
The victim received stitches for two cuts to his head, and another man's nose was injured during the incident, Monroe said. Fisher told police he was pushed at one point, Monroe said.
Fisher is scheduled to return to court for a preliminary hearing on Dec. 8.
