A Mount Pleasant teen and his father were charged with misdemeanors after the two confronted another teen that had thrown a brick through a truck window, according a criminal complaint by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.
Dylan Hanson, 17, and his father Scott Hanson, 46, were both charged in Racine with disorderly conduct by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office on Monday. If convicted, they face up to 90 days in jail and/or fines up to $1,000.
According to a criminal complaint, a 16-year-old teenager threw a brick through a truck Dylan was driving just after 10 p.m. in the 2500 block of Pinehurst Avenue.
When the teen went home, Dylan, Scott and other family members confronted the boy. Dylan and Scott beat the boy with “bats and crowbars.” Both father and son told police they went to the boy’s house and admitted that a physical fight happened. They also said that during the fight, the boy pulled out a gun and pointed it at them.
The teen is not being named because he was not charged as an adult. A number of neighbors heard the fight in front of the boy’s home.
