AbateHate.com — Thomas Driscoll, age 57, was fatally punched in Nevada.
Arrested after the incident was Brandon Leath.
Driscoll was visiting Las Vegas when he and a companion walked through a group of males. One of the males apparently sucker punched him in the head, causing his death.
The incident occurred February 28, 2021, reports say.
Shortly before 4:30 a.m., Driscoll was walking with a woman, identified by police as Nava Fuehrer, on a pedestrian bridge between The Cromwell and Bally’s when they walked past a group of men.
One of the men, identified as 33-year-old Brandon Leath, made a comment about Driscoll and Fuehrer walking through the group, according to the report.
Seconds later, Leath ran toward Driscoll and Fuehrer, then ran down a set of stairs on the Bally’s side of Flamingo Road as the two took an escalator down from the bridge.
Leath then waited at the bottom of the escalator for Driscoll and Fuehrer, police wrote.
“Leath set down his backpack and took a fighting stance,” the police report states.
Driscoll walked toward Leath and Leath threw one punch, causing Driscoll to fall to the ground on his back, according to the report. Driscoll did not move after the punch.
