A 69-year-old man was taken off life support on Wednesday, three days after sustaining injuries in a physical altercation outside of a California Starbucks.
Robert Ketner was enjoying his latte on Oct. 17 when a vehicle approached playing really loud music. “People were complaining about it,” a family member told KTXL. ” So, he pointed out which car it was and asked them to turn their music down.”
Sometime during this dialogue, Ketner was punched to the ground “sustaining an injury to his head. He never regained consciousness,” Rocklin Detective Zack Lewis told CBS13.
On Wednesday, 20-year-old, River Baumann was out on bail in connection to the incident when he was rearrested on one charge of voluntary manslaughter.
His current bail is $250,000 and he is expected in court on Nov. 3.
Remembered as an “avid motorcycle rider” who “enjoyed being a grandfather & great-grandfather,” Ketner will be greatly missed. He “loved telling funny stories & hanging around with friends.”
“Whatever the argument was, no one deserves to lose their life,” Lewis said.
