The 6-foot-5, 220-pound Gary Leroy Johnson was captured on videotape delivering a half-dozen punches to the skinny victor’s face and one kick to his head during the Aug. 19 beating at the suspect’s home.

According to police, the 35-year-old Johnson agreed to act as referee in a fight between his son and the 16-year-old boy to settle a dispute.

He “told both the boys that if they wanted to fight, he would monitor the fight and make sure it was a fair fight,” an arrest affidavit stated.
