The Mono County Sheriff’s Department posted this news release on Aug 19th:
On Saturday, August 14, at approximately 10:19 pm, Mono County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch received a 9-1-1 call
for a juvenile who had been badly beaten at a party near the Crowley Lake Dam.
Several juveniles from both Mono and Inyo Counties attended the party. At around 10 pm, an argument began,
and the 17-year-old victim ended up on the ground. The 16-year-old suspect punched the victim in the face and
head multiple times until the suspect was pushed off of the victim by another partygoer. One juvenile called
9-1-1 and stayed with the unconscious victim until medics and law enforcement arrived.
The incident was captured on video by several juveniles at the party and most of them fled the area prior to law
enforcement arrival. The victim was transported to Mammoth Hospital and treated for severe face and head
injuries.
Mono County Sheriff’s Office conducted an investigation and identified the suspect as a resident of Bishop. The
suspect was detained on Thursday August 19, 2021 and transferred into the custody of Mono County Juvenile
Probation. The findings of the investigation will be presented to the Mono County District Attorney for review.
Due to the age of the individuals involved, their identities will not be released. This is an active investigation and
anyone with information is asked to contact the Mono County Sheriff’s Office.

“My brother was viciously beaten. While he was unconscious, his attacker knocked out several teeth, split my brothers mouth and face open, and left him to bleed out on the ground. He did not stop beating my brothers face in, bystanders took a video instead of breaking up what was obviously an unfair fight. The video is too vulgar for me to watch, but there is a video circulating. It disgusts me that people would rather take videos than save my brother from an attack that will affect him for the rest of his life. He was hospitalized on life support for a couple days and now is not able to work and was supposed to start at a new school this Thursday. It is going to take a very long time for him to come back from this horrible incident. He is only alive today because of the courageous boys that got his attacker off of him and called 911. We are hoping and praying that justice will be served. I am starting a Go fund me to raise awareness and help with medical bills and legal fees. Please share this, even if you cant donate, a share will help us get justice for the sick individual that did this to my brother. Thank you”

Ms, Hardwick has been managing the GoFundMe account and as of reporting, it has raised $11,170.
If you can, please consider donating to help him and his family in this time of need. Even just sharing this article will help get the word out.
