Douglas Reddish faces charges after n-word punch left drunk Austin Dewan knocked out, bleeding with a concussion

One punch critically injured a drunk white man who dropped the n-word at a Manhattan restaurant.

Douglas Reddish, age 25, was eating with his girlfriend at Benny’s Burritos in the city’s West Village neighborhood when a worse-for-wear Austin Dewan, age 31, stumbled into their table on the sidewalk.

Witnesses said that Reddish jumped up to help the visibly inebriated Dewan, but when he slurred out “This n***** wants to fight me” which resulted in Reddish losing control and punching him.

In fact, he was so enraged he went to punch the unconscious man again, but the patrons stopped him.

“I couldn’t believe it,” the witness said. “He mentioned the N-word, this guy hits him one time and he hits his head on the curb.”

“He was out cold. I thought he was dead,” said Benny’s worker Robert Garcia to the New York Post.

Dewan fell backwards with such force from the blow that he hit his head on the sidewalk’s concrete curb causing him to be knocked-out with blood pouring from a wound on his head.

Paramedics rushed the man to Beth Israel Medical Center with head trauma.

After realizing the state that Dewan was in, Reddish fled the scene.

    I hope this is not how we intend to meet the future. Everyone knows drunks are sometimes evil and a real man walks away. This guy was hospitalized in critical condition with massive head wounds.
    People need to learn not to throw punches. We just need to stop thinking fists are the answer! Enough already.

    […] I understand that Zimmerman/Martin is racially charged.  But no more than this forthcoming case, in which I’m 100% behind the (black) defendant against a white fellow that I can’t […]
