2 Mississippi men say they beat man in videotaped attack
WAYNESBORO, Miss. (AP) - Two Mississippi men admit they took part in a beating captured on video and shared on social media.
WDAM-TV reports 32-year-old Landon McCaa and 28-year-old Tomas Sion Brown told Wayne County Justice Court Judge Charles Chapman on Wednesday that they assaulted an unnamed man.
McCaa says he attacked because he mistakenly believed the victim had insulted his family. McCaa says he was "drinking and out of control" and says he apologized before the victim left his house.
Wayne County Sheriff Jody Ashley says the victim was badly injured, underwent surgery and is recovering at home.
The judge set bails of $500,000 for each man on aggravated assault charges. Both remain jailed.
The court appearance was not a formal guilty plea and the men say they are hiring lawyers.
