ECU police said a man arrested Monday for a pregame assault outside Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium punched a 23-year-old ECU alumnus from behind, knocking him out cold.

Stefan James Vaughan, 24, of Currituck County, has been identified as the man caught in a flash of video striking Gregory Taylor Shouse before the Aug. 31 East Carolina University football game with Old Dominion.

Shouse, a Clemmons resident, fell face-first to the ground and suffered serious injuries, authorities said. Vaughan, identified and located with the help of witnesses and concerned citizens, was arrested in his home county and charged with assault inflicting serious injury, according to the East Carolina University Police Department. His bond was set at $25,000.

Prosecute Convict and Publicize

He should be prosecuted. Hopefully, he'll be convicted based on the video evidence and eyewitness accounts. Then it needs to be publicized heavily so that future miscreants are aware of what happens when you resort to violence at a football game.


Not only should he be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, pursude civily, but ECU should ban him from the campus for life. Ain't got no time for this drunken foolish mess!


I agree the guy showed the type of coward he is.

Takes a big man

To hit someone while not looking. Hope he goes to jail. A little prison love might teach him a lesson.
