Local Boy Beaten at a Party at Crowley Lake

Mono County SheriffFrom: Sheriff Ingrid Braun
Date: August 19, 2021
Re: Press Release – Juvenile Subject Detained in Violent Assault at Party
___________________________________________________________________________________________
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.

Related and not, but still a foundational question: where are these young people getting alcohol for these parties? Parents and older siblings tends to be the answer. So, please, don’t get your kids alcohol or allow them to get it elsewhere. That would be a really good start.

Well, I’m guessing a different rock than you have been living under. While it is illegal to do so, we have MANY parents here in the Mammoth area who buy alcohol for their teens. Even if you forget that it’s illegal, it adds to the dangers these kids face—fights, poorer… Read more »

Most would be shocked to know who the suspect is related to. This is not his first altercation and seems to escape responsibility for his past actions. Hopefully Mono County will be more attentive to accountability than Inyo has in the past. And don’t try the whole “the kid had… Read more »

I second your point dpblue about simply ignoring INYOFACE’s vitriol. Sometimes it’s hard to suppress reflecting that person’s own negativity back on the world, but I try to simply drop it and ignore it because I realize any negative response is just adding fuel to the fire. Internally, I remind… Read more »

@Disgusted really? Both set of parents allowed their children to attend the same party. Both are minors. Neither of them should have been there. That does not make all of them horrible parents. Kids make stupid decisions on their own majority of the time!

How Progressive of you , How Wise and Experienced you must be. To come to the Conclusion that the only possible explanation for another persons opinion or view you do not agree with must be due to their living in Misery and are not able to enjoy life. I hope… Read more »

This has NOTHING ago do with schools. This has EVERYTHING to do with horrible, irresponsible parents. From the parents of the 16 year old who let their child even think it was okay to be at that party to the parents whose child not only videoed it and laughed while… Read more »

Parents like the mom at the school board meeting saying (Lori) it isn’t their kids responsibility to take care of others. If you can’t be bothered to stop a near fatal beating you are equally responsible. The kid filming the video is equally responsible. And honestly a little sick to… Read more »

Am I my brother’s keeper? Apparently not these days.
No compassion. No empathy. No humanity.
And no responsibility for their actions.
You are right, Sal. We heard them at the school board meeting.

Well said. People filming events like this is Darwin working in action. Not only does it document EXACTLY what happened, it also identifies people. Good job idiots. Keep filming yourselves doing dumb stuff. The courts love it as it makes their convictions a lot easier.

Inyoface appears to enjoy spewing division and hatred.
I will dare to suggest to those who interact here that we recognize what he’s trying to do and ignore him.
Our country is too harshly divided and its certainly not helpful to foster it.
Long live Democracy.

CRT is not a part of any public school curriculum anywhere. You’re tilting at windmills again.

Where have you been living , IN A CAVE ? Tens of Thousands of parents all over the United States have been swarming school board meetings for the Removal of CRT from the curriculum.
I guess you also believe that the world is FLAT. And Darwin was a Heretic .
