A Corinth, Mississippi resident has denied allegations that a vicious attack on gay man Devin Norman last weekend was a hate crime
Scott (above) has admitted to attacking Devin Norman (right) in the car park of a Corinth Walmart last Friday. Norman suffered a broken cheekbone and other serious facial injuries.
Scott alleges that Norman threatened to out him using images posted on Facebook.
“I cannot see how it could be a hate crime. I don’t even have an emotional hatred for him. The only thing I dislike about it was that he took something from me…I should have know better. I should have been more of an adult. I should have thought before I acted.”
Charges against Scott are likely to be upgraded from simple assault to aggravated assault after police found out Norman suffered broken bones.
