FBI investigating beating of Native American man as hate crime

 


BRADLEY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) - The FBI is now investigating whether an assault, in which a Native American man was brutally beaten, was a hate crime.

Three people were arrested for the crime, involving the victim, 60-year-old, James Russell in Bradley County.

It happened at a house on Red Clay Road in November. The Bradley County Sheriff's Office calls the attack a case of mistaken identity that led to aggravated assault but the FBI will look into whether the racial slurs said during the attack, could result in it being classified a hate crime.
