Brick police probe teen assault video on YouTube

Brick Township police are getting assistance in an assault case from a video circulating on YouTube.

According to police, a cell phone video on the Web site features 19-year-old Brian Hann getting beaten as he tries to defend himself. Authorities have identified eight teenagers in the video.

Hann says the fight started after he told an attacker to stop harassing a girl while on a school bus. Authorities say Hann was punched in the face before the brawl spilled into the parking lot.

Police have identified half of the teenagers as juveniles and half as adults. It is likely some of the teens could face assault charges in the incident.
