Miladin Kovacevic, who is wanted by U.S. authorities after being charged with beating a fellow Binghamton University student into a coma, has signed a contract with a Serbian basketball club. Kovacevic, who attended Binghamton on a basketball scholarship, will play for KK Vrbas which is in a regional Serbian league, according to the AP. The team's captain said the team "is on his side," presumably meaning they support his decision to flee the authorities and refusal to face charges in the U.S. It's unclear what U.S. officials will do next, as they have already spoken to the Serbian government and Kovacevic's parents. The beating victim, Bryan Steinhauer, is still in critical condition.
