Russhon Phillips, 19, remains free on $75,000 bail after he waived all charges that stemmed from the Sept. 18 incident in front of Leon’s Bar, 432 E. Fifth St., according to The Morning Call.
Those charges are aggravated assault, simple assault, underage drinking, disorderly conduct and harassment. Phillips continues to be under suspension from the football team.
Phillips waived charges even though his defense attorney claims that eyewitnesses will call into question the prosecution’s case, according to The Express Times.
Police have also charged another Lehigh student, Nicholas Cicione, 21, in the fracas.
The victim suffered facial fractures and a concussion as a result of the attack, the newspaper said.
