A 33-year-old man caught on video punching a patron at a St. Clair Shores sports bar faces second-degree murder and manslaughter charges.

Hatum Akrawi is seen on video on Dec. 22 blindsiding a man standing at a table at Kapones Sports Tavern on Harper Avenue, Fox 2 reports. The victim, Shawn Kubic, 47, falls on his back and is motionless as a bouncer gently guides Akrawi away.

Akrawi left and turned himself in to police after the incident. He was initially charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm. But those charges were upgraded when Kubic died the day after Christmas, Fox 2 reports. 

Witnesses told police the men weren't arguing at the time, but had been earlier.
