Tsinnie was taken into custody Sunday. Investigators say Tsinnie and the 31-year-old male friend hitchhiked from Tuba City to Flagstaff and then allegedly consumed a significant amount of alcohol.

Witnesses say Tsinnie knocked the victim to the ground and kicked him in the head and face multiple times.

The man remains in the Flagstaff Medical Center where he's being treated for serious facial and head injuries. His name hasn't been released.
