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.

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.

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.
