Prosecutors also charged the men with malicious intimidation or harassment, a hate crime charge, after they say Killian and Johnson sought to harass Carolina because of his race. Much of the assault was caught on video, and a witness recalled hearing the suspects shout slurs and “white power!” before fleeing the scene.

Killian, who was already on parole for a previous offense, also faces a felony charge of preparing false evidence after he was caught on video punching himself in the face repeatedly in a police interview room, before officers could take photos of his injuries.
