Timothy D. Young, 40, New London, was charged Monday, Sept. 20, with aggravated battery, disorderly conduct and two counts of felony bail jumping.
Shortly before midnight Friday, Sept. 17, New London police responded to a fight in the Citizens Bank parking lot on North Water Street.
When Officer Ben Schmidt arrived at the scene, he found Christopher Scotto, 28, lying in a pool of blood, conscious but unable to speak.
Witnesses told police that Young and Scotto had been slap-boxing when Young punched Scotto in the face. Scotto fell, hitting his head on the pavement.
Paramedics transported Scotto to the New London Family Medical Center. He was then transferred to Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah because he had a fractured skull and his brain was bleeding, according to the criminal complaint.
As of Monday afternoon, Scotto remained in the intensive care unit at Theda Clark.
Young faces up to six years in prison if convicted of battery.
He appeared in Outagamie County Circuit Court on March 16 on two felony drug charges and was released from custody on a $2,000 signature bond.
