The man, whose name has not been released by police, was taken by ambulance to The Westerly Hospital and later transferred to Rhode Island Hospital. The 22-year-old man has since been released from the hospital, Westerly Police Chief Edward St. Clair said Wednesday.
A witness told police the man was among a group of people who had been drinking at the residence. The man returned to the house after the party ended and became involved in a physical altercation with one of the residents.
St. Clair said officers are trying to determine whether the man sustained the head injury as a result of being pushed or from a fall. Possible charges will depend on the outcome of the investigation, St. Clair said.
