SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A South Texas bar employee has been charged with aggravated assault when a patron died after allegedly being punched by the worker.

A San Antonio police report says Mitchell Jeremy Sanderson was under the influence of alcohol when he was asked to leave Sunday night after allegedly throwing a beer bottle behind the bar.

Employee Daniel Longoria told investigators that Sanderson went outside but refused to leave and then insulted and tried to strike him. Longoria told police that he punched Sanderson in the head in self-defense.

Police say a review of security video found Sanderson never tried to punch Longoria, who’s free on $50,000 bond.

Online jail records Wednesday did not list information for Longoria. A publicly listed number for Lost Bar & Grill wasn’t in service Wednesday.
