The two were at a party when they got into a fist fight in Erith, London.

Witnesses described how Main was laughing while the two exchanged blows before Main fell face down on the ground.

The victim turned blue and Bartley tried to hold him while crying and saying he did not mean to hurt Main.

Bartley claims that he barely touched his friend. He told police that the two had been “messing around” and exchanged blows.

Bartley, who had known Main for 10 years, was arrested after he was accused of delivering the fatal blow, which ultimately killed his friend.

Main was taken to Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford, Kent, where he died.

A post-mortem examination on the body discovered that Main had deep bruising on the left side of his chest, which is believed to be the result of a blow.

Police said that drugs and alcohol were involved.

“There is no suggestion that there had been any animosity between the two earlier that evening. Indeed, the evidence suggests that they were getting on well,” the prosecutor said.

(Scroll down for video) A family is angry that a man walked free after killing 3 children by passing a red light.

Larry LaThorpe, 68, of Oregon, said that he was “daydreaming” when he struck and killed three children and injured their mother.

Prosecutors said that there was not enough evidence to charge LaThorpe with the murders of John Day, 8, McKenzie Hudson, 5, and Tyler Hudson, 4, who died as a result of LaThorpe passing a red light.

LaThorpe also wounded the mother of the children, Cortney Hudson-Crawford, 26, when he struck the family in a crosswalk.

LaThorpe, who pleaded no contest to careless driving, told investigators that he was “probably dreaming” when the incident occurred.

Investigators determined that LaThorpe passed a red light when he killed the children. However, according to Lane County District Attorney Alex Gardner, that does not make LaThorpe criminally negligent.

According to Gardner, LaThorpe was not intoxicated. There is no indication of recklessness. The medication he was taking did not affect his ability to drive.

As a result of his plea, LaThorpe had his license revoked for one year. He was ordered to do 200 hours of community service, and he will also have to complete a driver's safety course.

The Hudson family is disappointed with the verdict. Their attorney, Mike Arnold, said that they will review the case and consider filing civil lawsuits against LaThorpe.
