TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - A Georgia man has been arrested after
police found a 19-year-old unconscious from a fight on the
University of Alabama campus.

The Tuscaloosa News reports Monday that the victim was listed in
critical condition at DCH Regional Medical Center on Sunday night.

Capt. Loyd Baker, commander of the Tuscaloosa Metro Homicide
Unit, said police responded to a call of a fight early Sunday
morning and found the victim. The injured man's name has not been
released.

Ryan Allan Lippitt was charged with first-degree assault. The
19-year-old suspect from Alpharetta, Ga., posted a $5,000 bail from
the Tuscaloosa County Metro Jail on Sunday.

Baker said witnesses told police that multiple white males
assaulted the victim and left the area.
