The Campbell County Sheriff's Office is looking into a report from an area teenager who says he was bullied into drinking alcohol and then beaten. Captain Roy Seeman says the 15 year old claims he attended a juvenile party east of Gillette on October 13th. The teen told authorities that he was initially not drinking but was later threatened with violence to start consuming alcohol.
"Other people there were harassing him and told him that they were going to punch him if he didn't drink"----Seeman
The teen said he did begin to consume alcohol at that point but was soon a victim of violence anyway. The teen reported that he suffered a ruptured eardrum and other injuries after being beaten with a bottle. He also says he was punched and kicked by unknown individuals. The teen also told a deputy that his jacket was urinated on and he had some items stolen. Seeman says the case is under investigation.
