According to a police report, David Brown's mother called Albuquerque police from UNM Hospital early Sunday morning.

The report says Brown's friends took him to the hospital after he was injured in a fight with Evah Tohi, a linebacker at UNM.

Brown and Tohi were at a party Saturday night, according to the report.

Tohi reportedly called Brown a name, which apparently triggered the physical fight.

Police say Brown chest bumped Tohi and then Tohi punched him in the chest and face.

Other players at the party told investigators that they held Tohi back, but he got loose and punched brown again, knocking him unconscious.

Brown’s mother told police that her son had bleeding on the right side of his brain.

Police say when Brown regained consciousness, he was not cooperative.

No charges have been filed. However, Tohi has been suspended from the UNM football team.

Coach Bob Davie gave his first on-camera interview about the incident Wednesday. He said he is still waiting to learn more about the incident.

"I've not talked to either of the two young men, specifically about the details yet of how it started, who was right, who was wrong," Davie said.
