APD files charges in Ole Miss student attack

KVUE — Police have filed charges against one man accused in the attack of an Ole Miss student that left that student, Carson Otter, with life-threatening injuries.

According to an arrest warrant, 25-year-old Joshua Medina Ramirez is accused of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury — a second-degree felony.

Back in September, 21-year-old Otter was in Austin for the Ole Miss game against the University of Texas.

After bars closed, Otter and some friends were on the corner of Trinity and Seventh Street when a silver Honda sedan pulled up to the light. Otter and two men inside the car exchanged words until two men got out of the car, one of which was Ramirez. Police say Ramirez confronted Otter, saying, "What did you say?" Police say Ramirez then punched Otter once in the face, causing him to fall backward and hit his head on the curb.

Otter was transported to University Medical Center Brackenridge with life-threatening head trauma.

The senior real estate finance major survived and is now doing rehabilitation to help with his recovery. Otter is expected to make a full recovery, one that doctors say is a miracle.

Ramirez's bond is set at $10,000.
