(WMC-TV) – A man was taken to the hospital in critical condition after a fight on Beale Street that left him unconscious with blood and tissue coming out of his ear.

Witnesses told police that two men got into an argument inside a club. When the victim left, the suspect followed him outside and punched him in the face one time.

The victim fell to the ground. The man who punched him ran out the back door of the bar.

Witnesses say he was wearing a baseball jersey and a baseball cap. The woman he left with was wearing a floral-patterned dress.
