"One has been charged with felonious assault, the other with simple assault. One is a felony and one is a misdemeanor," Wilson told ABC News.
"It breaks down to the injuries. The broken arm is a felony," Lt. Wilson said. The second boy was allegedly involved only as far as "kicking and hitting" Tyler, he said.
They should also be charged with disorderly conduct and have to pay for the medical expenses of Tyler and pain and suffering.
I'm amazed towards the attitude of Tyler he is such a great boy with a great future ahead of him if he does really like cheer and is good at it.


Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

The school keeping some of the incidents hush-hush doesn't surprise me but if I were the parent of Tyler, I'd sue the parents of the two bullies (or just the one that broke his arm). Depending on what else the school concealed up that does get found, I may sue them too but the primary focus would be on getting the child addressed, then dealing with the bullies and their parents, then dealing with the school (which should get the general idea from the bully lawsuit).

I think the one who broke his arm should have the parents pay the medical bills and either get put into a juvenille detention center. He should also be charged with disorderly conduct. Perhaps getting sent to an educational facility for dealing with the anger and a psychiatric consult. This will depend on whether previous incidents have happened with the bully. The second bully should just have his parents pay whatever the fine is, possibly some medical bills and do community service, no youth jail or whatever. Depending on the bullying they did on school grounds, explusion or suspension. Same goes for any other bullies on school grounds. I'd guess though that the one who broke his arm did a fair bit of bullying on school grounds so I wouldn't be surprised if he got expelled. The second bully, possibly explusion. The others, depends on what's uncovered.

That's disgusting. Legal action needs to be taken against these people. It's sick how nothing is done until something like this happens.

Haha, that's actually quite a funny story. Not to be rude, but what do you expect to happen when a boy joins the cheer squad? He knew something like this would happen, so I mean, yeah he shouldn't have been beat up like that, but what was he expecting?

I have a friend who is a cheerleader. No one gives him shit, to my knowledge, except for his friends teasing him, but we are his friends and we aren't being mean.My friends tease me for ballet, but they're my friends. If it was anyone else, it wouldn't be acceptable. My point is, there's nothing wrong with a boy being a cheerleader, actually guys are needed in cheering because they can lift the girls up better than other girls can.

I wish bullying didn't exist, but this is part of life. This boy is learning a lesson very young, but he's learning it well. I'd be proud of him if he's my kid, he's not letting anything or anyone stop him from doing what he loves. Kudos to him.
