In March of 2016 at SXSW in Austin, Texas, Spencer Carlton assaulted Jerry Don Summers outside the Dogwood Nightclub on West 6th Street.
Carlton believed that Summers had groped his wife inside the bar, and pursued the man outside where he shoved Summers to the ground. Summers fell, struck his head, and died in the hospital four days later.
At the time, Carlton was booked on manslaughter charges. Since then the charges have been amended to criminally negligent homicide. Criminally negligent homicide is a State Jail Felony (between 180 days and 2 years in a State Jail institution)
Spencer Carlton is set to appear in Travis County Criminal Court on May 3rd 2017 at 9am.
