One arrested after the gang beating of a 20-year-old gay man in Atlanta

Atlanta police have arrested an 18-year-old man after the gang beating of a 20-year-old gay man on 4 February 2012.

Surveillance footage outside a store on the corner of Delevan and McDaniel Street in the city showed the victim, Brandon White, punched, kicked and verbally abused by a gang of men.

The video, which has since become widespread across the Internet (now removed) features prominent use of gay slurs, and according to reports, federal authorities are investigating the attack as a possible hate crime.
