Rutgers quarterback Philip Nelson, who transferred from Minnesota in January, was arrested Sunday morning for an assault in Mankato, Minn. that left a former teammate reportedly struggling to survive, police said.
CBS in Minnesota reported that Isaac Dallas Kolstad, 24, of Mankato, Nelson's former teammate, was "fighting for his life" on Monday.
At 2:09 a.m., while on patrol in the town's downtown entertainment district, officers of the Mankato Department of Public Safety police service came across a victim of an apparent assault near the intersection of Cherry and South Front streets, police said.
Kolstad was transported to the local hospital by ambulance. A suspect was located on scene and taken into custody for probable cause assault, police said.
