Teen charged for aggravated assault

A Three Oaks teen has been charged with aggravated assault after allegedly beating up another teen and posting video of it on Myspace.

According to our reporting partners at the News-Dispatch, Police say the 13 second video clip shows 14 year old Joseph "Trey" Ballard repeatedly punching and kicking 13 year old Cody Allwood.

The two were at odds after Cody was reprimanded in school for grabbing the backside of Ballard's soon-to-be stepsister.

Police say Ballard deceptively invited Allwood to his home to play video games, but really planned to beat him up.

Ballard's father stopped the fight.

The father told police he was at home at when the fight started, but was unaware his son planned to fight Allwood.

Ballard will be in Juvenile Court for the misdemeanor crime and faces a maximum of one year in jail.
