A 19 year old idiot admitted it KHOU TV that he beat up unsuspecting victims in a Houston park while being recorded on video just to get likes and views on YouTube and TikTok.
Oh, and Alford Lewis added to the station that while he regrets his violent actions, he “simply made a mistake, and everyone makes mistakes” and “on the video you only see the bad of it.”
What are the details?
The disturbing video, filmed in Wortham Park, showed a man wearing a red hoodie with the name “Spartans” on the front randomly approaching unsuspecting people from behind and delivering brutal punches, KHOU reported, adding that the Perpetrators also tried to attack a man in the Cypress Area Park earlier this week.
The video drew hundreds of comments and raised concern among residents who also use the parkway, the station said.
Well, a KHOU reporter caught up with the jerk, asked him about what was going through his mind, and said the jerk now regrets his violent actions.
“Yes, yes, I do,” Lewis told the station during an on-camera interview outside his home, not far from the park. “You know, I just made a mistake, and everyone makes mistakes.”

Lewis also admitted to KHOU that his parents weren’t thrilled when they found out about his ill-advised stunt.
But believe it or not, he added to the network that not everything about his actions was negative.
“I really didn’t expect it to go that far to the left, you know,” Lewis noted to KHOU. “I know from the video that you only see the bad things about it. But what people don’t see is that afterward, I shook his hand and hugged the man.” The broadcaster said it could not confirm that part of Lewis’ story.
Additionally, he noted to KHOU that the outrage over the video of him beating people up made him rethink his stunt — and he hopes others will learn from his mistake.
“Before you go out and do something that you think is bad or might look bad, make sure people know — or just don’t do it at all,” Lewis told the station.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office told KHOU that its Violent Crimes Unit is investigating the video and that victims may need to file a report for the case to proceed.
