Ross Nipple, 15, of Richards Road, joins four other teens that face charges of aggravated battery and unlawful street gang activity, according to Richmond County Sheriff's Sgt. Blaise Dresser.

Unlike the others, Nipple is not a member of the "Apple Valley Posse," Dresser said. In interviews with investigators, Nipple admitted to formerly identifying with the local gang and subset of the infamous Bloods gang, Georgia Deadly Boys, or GDB.

Police believe they were prowling the area around Circular Drive on March 1, looking for someone to attack, when they came upon the Reese as he was walking his girlfriend home from school.

Reese, an honor roll student with a steady job at a local café, called his mother on his cell phone and said he feared he was about to get "jumped" by the other boys.

While he was still on the phone, the assailants attacked. The victim was treated for the multiple broken bones in his face, police said. Over the last week and a half, police have made regular arrests of teens connected to the incident.

So far, Joshua Plowright, 14, Berten Blockett, 16, Mark Daniel Richard Musick, 14, and Brandon Mansson, 14, have all been charged in the fight. Three of the suspects, and Reese, are students at Butler High School. Plowright attends Sego Middle.

Joshua Plowright was a

Joshua Plowright was a student at Sego Middle School not Butler. Also how come there hasn't been a printed report of the young man getting jumped in Apple Valley since this attack? I heard it mentioned on one of the TV news reports but have not seen it in print anywhere.

Kid must be mistaken. We

Kid must be mistaken. We don't have gangs here in river city. Why the sheriff has already told us not to worry about such a thing. And if we did have a gang problem, the deputy up on Tobacco road every day with his radar, would be patrolling the neighborhoods. The audacity to suggest such a problem in river city is simply terrible. Why, what would the masters visitors think if this got out.

Unpublished

The last story about this beating I posted what I thought these "gang" members should be called. It was a feline reference and it got deleted.

AugustaVoter is right. I made the mistake of grouping them all together and forgot Plowright was the stand out. We have since corrected the error.

To me gangs are in the same

To me gangs are in the same category as terrorists, and should be treated as such, they mean to do harm to citizens of this country. I feel so sorrow for them other than the fact that unfortunately some of them have probably had little to no positive adult supervison or rold models.

Where's "Homeland Security"

Where's "Homeland Security" when you need them? This is our homeland and it is under attack. I agree stillamazed! Maybe Ronnie still thinks this isn't a big deal?

all these negative

all these negative comments..i think we should be praying! i am a good friend of ross's! (im 16) and i know him inside out he is not a violent person! na i dont no if he played the keyboard,was with the deacon and all that blah blah stuff but i no he is a good child and wants the best for everybody! his parents probably do the best that they can do at the moment whether they are using there brains at the time or not..we all have our faults we all have our problems and we all should be forgiven..we are not put on this earth to decide whats wrong and whats right or judge each other we are here to live so lets do just that...the government,police and school systems are taking care of that as best they no how...lets just hope fair judgement is passed! lets all remember you dont have to go to church to pray,be saved and be a good person...the best of us make the worst decisions and it reflects on our character in the worst way but doesnt make us who we are!! you dont have to walk around making the best decisions all the time because we are not saints..we are put on this world to learn from our mistakes and move on!! he is 15 years old and has made a decision that will hold him back from something from the rest of his life he does not need to be mentally stoned or punished by you (negative & positive press or opinions!)!!
plus the fact of all the guilt and hatred towards himself he is feeling right now! nobody likes getting in trouble..especially a child..i am considered a problem child myself but its time to get up and learn because unlike some of you that want to see my generation suffer i am going to be something and i cant keep losing my friends to the grave and to jail..
we all are going to be something and ross is to once he is granted the chance!
once again i say pray..hope for the best give people a chance..more than one because nobody can do it once!!
I LOVE YOU ROSS-t.tutt
