Max Henson, 23, suffered a traumatic brain injury when he bounced two unruly patrons from his workplace, the Uptown branch of Drink, two weeks ago. According to Minneapolis police, Henson fell and hit his head on the concrete while escorting two men from the building after they attempted to assault one of his Drink co-workers, the Star Tribune reported.

Henson died on March 29, at Hennepin County Medical Center, six days after sustaining the injury.

The two patrons, Jason A. Sunby, 25, and Nicholas R. Anderson, 24, both of Minneapolis, were jailed and charged with misdemeanor fifth-degree assault and later released. The police homicide team is looking at the incident and will forward a case to the Hennepin County attorney's office to consider filing other charges.

Henson's funeral takes place April 10 in Northfield.
