BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Less than 24 hours after taking a plea for inciting a riot involved in the shooting death of a high school football player, a Brunswick County teen is back in jail for violating his probation, according to the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office.
Jamar Bethea pleaded guilty yesterday to felony inciting a riot. The fight last year led to the death of South Brunswick High School player Marcus Hankins.
As part of his probation, Judge Ola Lewis ordered Bethea to stay away from social networking sites, but the Sheriff’s Office says he was posting on Facebook. So Lewis issued an arrest order for Bethea and placed him under $1 million bond for violating the probation she gave him yesterday.
