Hamilton’s arrest comes on the heels of the arrest of another teen involved in the brawl. Asjaney Naraine, 16, is accused in the assault on a 17-year-old girl that started the melee.
During a chaotic caught-on-video brawl that went viral, Whittingham is seen trying to break up a fight between two teenage girls. But then he himself became a target of violence – punched by a shirtless attacker whom police identified as the just-arrested Hamilton.
