UPDATED: A charge of involuntary manslaughter has been filed against a man named Stanford C. Griswold, 27. From Christine:
According to court documents, Euston, who was intoxicated, was being overly friendly and hugging people. Griswold’s girlfriend told him to leave, but Euston refused and “kept getting in their faces.”
Griswold grew irritated at Euston and said he was going to “knock him out” if he didn’t leave.
When Euston stayed, Griswold punched him once. Euston fell, striking his head on the concrete. Griswold and his girlfriend walked away, court records said.
