4 arrested in attack on teen who said 'Blue lives matter'
SYLACAUGA, Ala. - Four black men are facing assault charges in connection with the beating of a white Alabama high school student who had posted pro-police comments online.
In a statement, Sylacauga (sihl-uh-KAW'-guh) Police Chief Kelley Johnson says four recent Sylacauga High School students were arrested Tuesday following the Sept. 30 attack against 17-year-old Brian Ogle.
Ogle's mother, Brandi Allen, says her son responded to students wearing Black Lives Matter T-shirts at his school with "Blue lives matter," a defense of police officers. He was hospitalized with serious head injuries.
Twenty-year-old Quartez Walker and 19-year-old Bobby Brown were arrested at Stillman College. Eighteen-year-old La Noah Ely, Jr. was arrested at Auburn University in Montgomery. Twenty-year-old Daveon Nix was arrested in Sylacauga.
Police have said the attack may have been racially motivated.
