It's been nearly a year since Newman Haas Lanigan mechanic Davey Evans died after being kicked in the head during a bar fight, but today comes word that this guy - 30-year-old James P Brackin - has pleaded guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter and is tentatively scheduled to be sentenced on Carb Day.
An Indianapolis man has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the death of an IndyCar Series crew member who suffered a stroke after a bar fight.Ironically, for the next 6-20 years he'll have a completely different kind of girlfriend.
James P. Brackin, 30, entered his guilty plea Tuesday in Marion Superior Court; he faces six to 20 years in prison at sentencing next month.
On May 4, before last year's Indianapolis 500, Brackin attacked David "Davey" Evans, 63, outside a bar in the 5800 block of Rockville Road after the two had argued inside over Brackin's girlfriend.
