Comments from one of the men who attacked Austin

Trevor Tice, the drunk 27 year old who attacked Austin for trying to stop Tice and his friends from beating a stranger, has recently spoken to the New Times (Uncertain future, January 24) about Austin's case.

Though he doesn't remember anything about that night, and despite witnesses saying they saw him attack Austin, pin him down, and punch him repeatedly in the face and head, Tice was bold enough to tell a New Times reporter that he "hope[s] justice is served."

We couldn't agree more.  One wonders if he comprehends that justice would mean he and his friends (who attacked the driver of the vehicle and Austin) being arrested and charged at the very least with menacing, assault and battery, and assault with a deadly weapon.

Tice was also quoted as saying it was fine with him if the case goes to trial and that, "[Jurors] can see the kind of person I am and the kind of person [Sarna] is.”  As someone who has been arrested multiple times for being drunk in public and who, again, on the night of the incident aided and participated in the assault of at least two innocent people, one might be a little more caution about what they wish for.
