NEW INFORMATION: Bails set for 2nd man charged in Mankato fight

By  | 

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) -- A judge has set bail at $20,000 for man accused of punching a former Minnesota State, Mankato, football player in the head and knocking him to the ground.

Twenty-one-year-old Trevor Stenner Shelley, of St. Peter, was charged with two felony assault counts Wednesday after a weekend attack that left the former Mavericks linebacker in critical condition. He's due back in court May 22.

Police arrested Shelley on Monday 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.

Former Minnesota quarterback Philip Nelson was charged with two similar counts Monday. He allegedly kicked Kolstad in the head.

Kolstad remains in critical condition.

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) -- A man arrested in a weekend assault that severely injured a former Minnesota State, Mankato, football player is expected to be charged.

Police arrested the 21-year-old man Monday, hours after they released surveillance video showing him running from the scene in downtown Mankato. Formal charges are expected Wednesday.

Former Minnesota quarterback Philip Nelson is already charged with two counts of felony assault. A criminal complaint says Nelson kicked 24-year-old Isaac Dallas Kolstad in the head after the other man punched Kolstad, knocking him to the ground.

Nelson's attorney has said his client was not the aggressor and that it's not clear who caused Kolstad's injuries.

Kolstad's family said on its CaringBridge website that a surgery Kolstad had on Tuesday morning went well. He was still in critical condition.
