AUSTIN, Texas — A man has been arrested after a suspected homicide following an altercation at an Austin adult entertainment club.

Police said 911 received a call for an unresponsive man at 12113 Dessau Road in northeast Austin on Friday, April 2, around 8:15 a.m. The man, identified as 28-year-old Jorge Jaimes, was pronounced dead at 8:30 a.m.

Homicide investigators determined that the previous night, Jaimes and friends were together at Club Chicas Bonitas at 3701 N IH 35. A physical altercation broke out inside the club and Jaimes attempted to intervene to stop the fighting, police said.

Jaimes was discovered dead in his bed the following morning, according to investigators. The Austin Police Department is treating the death as a homicide.

On Tuesday, April 6, an arrest warrant was issued for William Eugene Colvin III, 35, for aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury, a second-degree felony. On Wednesday, April 7, Colvin was taken into custody by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force on a $250,000 bond.

Task force members located Colvin in the 6600 block of Berkman Drive, where he was apprehended after an attempt to flee from officers.
