Police are investigating a fight reported early Monday at Jillian’s in downtown Indianapolis. About 90 people were inside the restaurant/bar/entertainment center at 141 S. Meridian St. for a wake when a fight broke out just before 3 a.m. Detectives said 25-year-old Corey Andrews hit another man on the head with a bowling ball; he was arrested for aggravated assault.

One person was hospitalized in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to good condition. Alcohol is believed to have played a role in the crash.
