An arrest has been made in connection with a fight that seriously injured a Milam County man who was trying to intervene.
Bryan resident Shannon Mushinski, 28, turned himself in to authorities shortly after 10 Thursday morning. He was charged with assault, then released after posting a $10,000 bond.
Mushinski is accused of hitting Gause resident Jerry Sowders, 48, during a July 13 fight outside a Post Oak Mall nightclub. Sowders was reportedly trying to break up the altercation between Mushinski and another person. Authorities say the blow caused Sowders head to slam into the pavement resulting in serious head injuries.
"It's a relief somebody came forward and we got it over with instead of waiting to find out who it was," said Robert Sowders, Jerry's brother. Sowders is said to be making progress in rehabilitation.
