VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say a Georgia teenager faces juvenile charges after he attacked a student draped in a gay pride flag in a school cafeteria.
Video of the incident was recorded last week at Lowndes High School in Valdosta, south Georgia.
It shows a teen boy charging across the cafeteria and jerking the flag from a second boy’s back as he falls.
A third student tries to push away the attacker, who slams the flag into a garbage can.
Lowndes County Sheriff Ashley Paulk says the boy has been charged with disorderly conduct, simple battery and disruption of a public facility.
Officials say the victim wasn’t physically injured
