3 charged with assault after incident in Piedmont High School locker room

3 Piedmont teens charges with assault

PIEDMONT, Ala. (WBRC) - Three people are charged with assault after an incident police say happened in a locker room at Piedmont High School.

Police Chief Freddie Norton confirms 19-year-old Bryson Gregg Ingram was booked into the Calhoun County Detention Center on Monday and charged with third-degree assault. Two juveniles, who the chief confirms are members of the Piedmont football team, were also charged with third-degree assault.

According to Norton, the incident involved the suspects forcing a key into the victim’s anal region.

The victim’s mother confirms she told another outlet: “He should be enjoying his high school years but he can’t because we had to pull him for school."

She added: "I thought he was safe under the supervision of the school. Unfortunately, he wasn’t. I will continue seeking justice and being his voice.”

Calhoun County District Attorney Brian McVeigh says a grand jury will consider if additional charges, including any related to sex crimes, will be added.
