The day's top national and international news.
Witnesses told officers that Stanley was verbally abusive to employees and patrons of the business, leading to a fight between Stanley and employees.
Police say surveillance video showed 33-year-old Damien Fugate striking Stanley, including twice after Stanley fell to the floor.
Fugate is charged with second-degree assault and it isn't immediately clear if prosecutors will upgrade the charge now that Stanley has died. Fugate does not have a listed attorney.
