Police arrest a man in fatal punch attack outside Las Vegas nightclub
LAS VEGAS, Calif. (FOX 11 / AP) - Police in Las Vegas have arrested a 27-year-old man they suspect of striking and killing a 45-year-old California man with a single punch during a brief confrontation last month on a downtown entertainment district sidewalk.
The Metropolitan Police Department says James Beach, also known as James Michael Garcia, faces a charge of murder after he was arrested on Sunday. Police say he's being held in the Clark County Detention Center.
Luis Campos of La Puente, California, died May 4 at a Las Vegas hospital.
Campos' brother, Drake Garibay, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal they were standing in line April 30 outside a club when the attacker stopped while walking past on the sidewalk, asked what Campos was looking at, and punched him.
Garibay said his brother never regained consciousness.
