MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 32-year-old man from St. Michael has been arrested after a 60-year-old man from Blaine died of injuries suffered in a bar fight over the weekend in Proctor.

Authorities said the incident happened early Sunday morning at the Power House Bar in Proctor. At about 1:39 a.m., police responded to a call at the bar where a white man was found unconscious outside the bar.

Dale Anderson was transported to a Duluth hospital, where he died Wednesday of injuries suffered in the altercation. Authorities said he suffered a fatal head injury.
