In May, Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell said the incident occurred after ongoing “trash talking” between the juveniles. Originally described as a fight, it was handled by authorities as an assault.
Police seized the phone used to record the incident.
A lawyer is to be appointed to represent the boy, who is to return to court on Aug. 10.
