Dynasty Young, the bullied LGBT teen expelled from Indianapolis' Arsenal Tech High School last week for carrying a stun gun to school to defend himself, has been attacked and punched at a downtown mall. dynasty-young-and-brother.jpegKhyran R. Delay, 34, has been identified as the assailant.

According to court documents, Delay told mall security officers that he recognized 17-year-old Darnell "Dynasty" Young from news coverage of his story and tried to talk to Young about it. He said Young got in his face and that he pushed Young.

But Young and Donald Richardson, a janitor who witnessed the incident, told police that when Young walked past Delay's table in the food court, Delay told Young to get away from him and used homophobic slurs. They said that Delay pushed Young and then hit him in the face, according to court documents. Richardson said he radioed for mall security, and then Delay came toward him because he was mad that Richardson had called security. Security officers arrived and detained Delay.

Delay has been charged with a misdemeanor count of battery.

Keep in mind, in Indiana the legislature has shown that it's perfectly okay for grown men to attack LGBT youth. Most politicians have also declared open warfare on gay and lesbian couples too.
