Keith Boudreau, 42, is a father of 3 and suffering life-threatening injuries after a bar fight escalated Monday night. The Quincy man is described as peaceful and kind by his friends, who are starting to lose hope that he will survive.
"He's a good kid, he doesn't deserve what happened to him," one friend said.
It started inside the Home Ice Sports Bar, then court documents say the victim was dragged out a back door and onto gravel. At Quincy District Court, 43-year-old Paul Fahey was charged with multiple counts of assault and battery. Court documents, show he beat Boudreau just for staring in his direction, and after knocking him to the ground, a witness says he even stomped on Boudreau's head.
The incident unfolded last Monday night and we learned from friends that it left Boudreau in a coma, on life support.
Friends say Boudreau had fallen on hard times, and lately lived at a shelter, but many are now fearing the worst possible fate.
"He's the nicest kid in the world and its sad to see him like this," a friend said.
Tuesday night, friends prayed he'd pull through, even though his injuries from this bar brawl could take his life.
On Wednesday, Boudraeu was taken off of life support.
"Keith is a loving, caring son, father and brother," Boudraeu's family said in a statement on Wednesday. "He knew no color barriers, he didn't judge people."
The family added that Boudraeu is no longer on life support and is not expected to live.
