CHARLESTON, SC - On June 12, Dalton Ellis Clark, the man whose sucker punch allegedly killed another man, had his bail reduced.

Originally $500,000, the bail was reduced to $150,000 according to a Charleston Clerk of Court. In addition, Clark is on 24 hour house arrest with the exception of work, medical appointments, court appearances, and meetings with attorneys, and cannot contact victims, the family of victims, co-defendants, or witnesses.

New suspect arrested, charged in fatal "sucker" punch incident
    
Clark is charged with manslaughter after sucker punching 27-year-old Clint Seymour. Seymour slipped into a coma and died days later from his injuries. The fight began after someone in Seymour's group made a drunken comment about a girl.

The city has passed the first reading of a law that calls for the closing of bars in parts of downtown, including King Street, to be at midnight instead of 2 AM since the brawl.

Initially, police suspected Peter Dudinyak of the crime, but amended their investigation after video surveillance confirmed that Clark was the one who threw the punch. Dudinyak now faces only an assault charge.
    
Clark has been held in jail since April 24.
