Findlay teen says beating by bully captured on cell phone video

Posted: Updated:

We have a follow-up to a story that made national headlines three years ago.

Back in September of 2010, an 11-year-old boy in Findlay said he was attacked by bullies while walking home from school because he was a cheerleader.

The middle school student named Tyler Wilson ended up with a broken arm. Two boys were charged with assault.

Tyler is now a freshman in high school and last week another fight sent him to the hospital.

This time the fight was captured on cell phone video.

Tyler stayed home from school on Tuesday. He says he's still in pain and scared. His mom is afraid next time he'll end up dead. We warn you that some of the video is disturbing.

This is cell phone video showing 14-year-old Tyler Wilson in a fight off of school property.

His mom says a girl posted the video to Tyler's Facebook page.

"I'm disappointed in her choice to do that because I don't know why she thought as a parent that I needed to see my son being beaten like that," says Kristy Wilson, Tyler's mom as she wipes tears from her eyes. "I have that picture in my head now."

"There was about 40 people there," says Tyler.

The Findlay High School freshman says last Thursday during a break from classes, a student who has bullied him in the past punched him and slammed his head against the ground.

Tyler says it was a boy involved in the fight three years ago, but not the one who broke his arm and ended up with probation and a fine.

Tyler says this fight started when in the morning he tried to stop the student from choking his cousin.

"He told me he wanted to talk after school, so I met him and we talked," says Tyler. "And I said, 'This can't happen. You can't be bullying my cousin. It's not right.'"

A Findlay police detective says this case in under investigation.

Officers are interviewing witnesses trying to determine how the fight started. No charges have yet been filed.

"I'm scared to go back," says Tyler who was home schooled for a while after his broken arm three years ago. He isn't sure when he'll return to class at Findlay High School.

Tyler's mom Kristy says she's scared, "that this will continue and that I'll have to go pick up my kid at the morgue instead of the hospital."

The Superintendent of Findlay City Schools says he just found out about the incident Tuesday morning. Even though it did not happen on school property, the district has started its own investigation.
