Teen charged after attack video surfaces online
YouTube video of a 16-year-old allegedly attacking another teen in the North Massapequa Preserve last month has cemented assault charges.
Ryan Codey, of Farmingdale, is accused of sucker-punching another 16-year-old and breaking his nose over a stolen video game controller. Police say an arrest would've been made without the video, but that the footage reinforces details of the fight.
Codey has been arraigned and ordered into anger management. Other teenagers allegedly shown on the video could also face charges.
