Cell phone video exonerates teen in food fight assault case

• AZ Family TV-3 (BELO)

After reviewing cell phone video and hearing from witnesses, a judge ruled that a teenager involved in a food fight at Horizon High School did not assault a teacher.

Conner Floyd was a freshman when the food fight -- a senior prank -- broke out in June. He was tackled by a teacher as he tried to leave the cafeteria. That teacher claimed Conner assaulted him. With that allegation and support for the teacher from the school, the teen was charged with aggravated assault -- a felony.
