SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - A 26-year-old man has been sentenced to 1 1/3 to 4 years in prison for causing the death of a man by slamming his head into the concrete floor of an upstate New York bar last year.

Jeffrey Mann Jr. of Lake George was sentenced Tuesday in Saratoga County Court for criminally negligent homicide and assault.

Mann admitted he grabbed 31-year-old Aaron Huggins by the neck from behind and slammed his face into the floor at the Paddock Lounge in downtown Saratoga Springs early on the morning of Sept. 24. The Saratoga Springs resident suffered a traumatic brain injury and later died at Saratoga Hospital.

Police said the two men didn’t know each other. Officials say Mann attacked Huggins after the men had bumped into one another.
