Charges were upgraded against a man who was involved in an altercation that led up to an assault that critically injured a Brown University basketball player.
Dillon Ingham, 22, of Fulton, N.Y., was arraigned in Wednesday in Providence District Court and charged with felony assault.
Police had arrested and charged Ingham with disorderly conduct for his role in an altercation on May 24. The person who Ingham is accused of assaulting was not immediately known.
Ingham was released on bail. A judge said Ingham would be allowed to travel between Rhode Island where he goes to school and New York where his family lives.
He's scheduled to return to court on July 25.
The Brown men's wrestling team listed Ingham as a member; he is also listed as having played football for Brown.
Ingham is also a fraternity brother of 21-year-old Joseph Sharkey, who was injured May 19 in an assault.
Tory Lussier, 24, of Vernon, Conn., is accused of assaulting Sharkey.
Lussier, a Connecticut Marine, was arraigned in Providence District Court on Friday and released on bail. An attorney for Lussier says his client acted in self-defense.
Police have said the assault happened after some type of altercation but have not provided details.
Sharkey is from Norwood, Mass. and is a sophomore member of Brown's basketball team. He suffered serious head injuries and has been in critical condition at Rhode Island Hospital.
