Second Suspect Arrested in Case of Assault on Former Bison Player

Posted: Updated:
A second suspect has been arrested in connection with a weekend fight that left a former Minnesota State, Mankato, linebacker critically injured. 

As news of the second arrest was announced, Rutgers also announced they’ve dismissed former Minnesota quarterback 20-year-old Philip Nelson from its football program. 

Nelson has already been charged with two counts of felony assault in connection with the early Sunday attack of 24-year-old Isaac Dallas Kolstad.

Mankato Police say they received numerous tips about the assault and from those tips were able to make a second arrest of Trevor Stenner Shelley, 21, of St. Peter, Minn. 

Shelley was arrested around 6:15 pm. Monday at his residence and taken into the Blue Earth County jail. 

He’s been charged with first-degree and third-degree assault. 

At a press conference Monday, investigators also identified a white vehicle in the area during the assault. 

They said both occupants of that vehicle have come forward to give details to investigators. 

However, police are still looking for additional witnesses to the assault. 

Nelson made his first court appearance on Monday. 

He posted bail, which was set at $20,000, and was released. He walked out of jail with a towel over his head.

Nelson left the Gophers in January to transfer to Rutgers, saying he wanted a football program that would better fit his skills. Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood announced Tuesday that Nelson has been dismissed from their program.

“The Rutgers football family’s thoughts and prayers are with Isaac Kolstad and his family,” Flood said, in a released statement.
