Neillsville man dies after getting punched in bar fight

A central Wisconsin man has died, two days after he was punched in a bar fight.

Keith Young, 43, of Neillsville suffered head injuries early Sunday at the Brickyard tavern in Neillsville. He died Tuesday morning at a Marshfield hospital.

Tyler Meier, 36, of Shawano was charged on Monday with aggravated assault and disorderly conduct.

Those charges could be upgraded now that the victim has died but Clark County prosecutors won't make a decision until Young's autopsy results are complete.

Investigators said Young pushed Meier in the chest - and the two argued before Meier hit him, and the victim fell to the floor.
