Four men arrested in attack on Alabama teen who said 'Blue lives matter'

Four men face assault charges in connection with the beating of a Alabama high school student who had posted pro-police comments online, police confirmed Wednesday.

The men, all former Sylacauga High School students, were arrested Tuesday after the Sept. 30 attack against 17-year-old Brian Ogle, Sylacauga Police Chief Kelley Johnson told reporters. Police have said the attack may have been racially motivated.

Ogle's mother, Brandi Allen, says her son responded to students wearing Black Lives Matter T-shirts at his school with "Blue lives matter," a defense of police officers. Officers found him bleeding on the ground after a homecoming football game.

He was hospitalized with serious head injuries.
