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.
