Star athlete charged with battery

CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) –  Caddo Parish deputies arrested a high school star athlete for allegedly beating up a 16-year-old causing a severe concussion.  Eighteen-year-old T. K. Fleming of Benton was arrested on a second degree battery charge.  His bond is set at $75,000.
Investigators say witnesses told them Fleming showed up at a party on April 10th, looking to fight one person in particular.  Witnesses told investigators that when Fleming found out that person was not at the party, Fleming randomly approached the 16-year-old, hit him in the mouth, knocked him down, and kicked him several times in the head.  The victim went to the hospital the following day and found out he had a severe concussion.
