The man who fell over a second-floor railing at a South University Avenue bar is in critical condition.

Ann Arbor Police Sgt. Richard Kinsey said police are investigating the case that took place at Mitch’s Place early Sunday morning, but that they are still waiting on hospital records of the man’s blood alcohol content before proceeding.

Police said the fall appears to have been in accident.

“All indications are it was not as a result of any kind of fight or anything like that,” Sgt. Richard Kinsey said.

Police are still waiting on hospital records of the man’s blood alcohol content before proceeding with the investigation.

Police identified the victim as a 30-year-old man from Royal Oak who is unaffiliated with the University, but had not released his name as of last night.

Ann Arbor Police were called to the South University Avenue bar on shortly after the incident occurred around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

When police arrived on the scene, they found the man on the floor unconscious and severely injured. The man was transported by ambulance to the University Hospital.

Management staff at Mitch’s declined to comment yesterday. The bar remained open Monday night.
