WSU Instructor Recovering From Brain Injury After Attack
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - The Washington State University instructor who was beaten three months ago outside a Pullman bar is undergoing speech and physical therapy as he fights to recover from a brain injury at his home in Pullman.
David Warner says he doesn't remember the eight weeks he spent in a hospital.
The 41-year-old who taught in WSU's Department of Critical Culture, Gender and Race Studies now struggles with his vocabulary. His doctor says he's making strides but it's too early to say how well he will heal.
Police have recommended assault or criminal assistance charges against five people. Two are WSU students and two are their friends. One is a friend of Warner's who is accused of instigating the fight.
