According to a criminal complaint, witnesses at a bar in St. Paul said Whisler and Ryan went to the bathroom at the same time, where some urinals were covered in cellophane to facilitate social distancing.

Whisler then recorded himself urinating at the covered urinal on his cellphone, which “agitated” Ryan, according to the lawsuit, but the coach said nothing. Prosecutors said Ryan later called out Whisler as his party was leaving the bar, sparking an altercation that spilled outside.

As witnesses attempted to separate the two, Whisler reportedly ripped Ryan’s mask from his face, grabbed his shirt, and punched him in the face. Ryan fell backward down a flight of nine stairs and hit his head on concrete, according to prosecutors. According to the lawsuit, responding officers discovered him lying on his back in a “river of fresh blood” at the bottom of the stairs.

Ryan was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with a brain injury that doctors said he would not be able to recover from. Prosecutors said he was taken off life support on Sunday. The same day Ryan died, Whisler surrendered to St. Paul police. According to the lawsuit, the man’s death has ruled a suicide due to a traumatic brain injury by a medical examiner.

Whisler is accused of causing Ryan’s death without intent and faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted. A Ramsey County Attorney’s Office spokesman told The Post that he was scheduled to be released later Tuesday after posting bail, which a judge set at $300,000 during his initial court appearance Tuesday.
