Brennan was charged with three counts of second-degree assault.
The boy and the girl were posting flyers on the bike trail that said, “A man was lynched by police, What are you doing about it?” according to Fox 5 DC. They were with a third teen, another girl.
In the video, the girl, who cops say was attacked, is heard screaming “Get away from me!” as the man grabs her flyers.
The boy is heard saying, “Hey, leave her alone.”
The video then shows the man picking up his bicycle and running towards the boy with it.
The boy told FOX 5 that the man was “screaming at us, saying we are ‘inciting’ riots and calling us ‘deviants.’”
