Man released without charge following fight that led to fatal crash on light rail


A 29-year-old St. Paul man was released without charge Wednesday from Hennepin County Jail following his involvement in a fight on a light rail platform that ended when another man was fatally hit by a train.

Reginald Eugene Snelling, 41, of Minneapolis, died of multiple blunt injuries and asphyxiation following a collision and compression by the train after the fight at 1:30 a.m. Saturday on the tram platform from 5th Street in downtown Minneapolis. His death was ruled a homicide and the other man involved was arrested that night. The Star Tribune generally does not name suspects until they have been formally charged.

Hennepin County District Attorney Mary Moriarty’s office initially requested an extension to reach a charging decision, then said in a statement Wednesday that the office was postponing any potential charges until final toxicology reports are received. and autopsy and further investigation by law enforcement.

“There is clear Metro Transit video of the interaction between the deceased and the subject of the investigation, which begins inside a streetcar and continues on the station platform after they exit the train” , the statement said. “The video raises questions and legal issues that need to be resolved to ensure that any possible charges are supported by sufficient evidence to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in court and that the state is able to overcome any defenses that may arise.”
