Posted: Sunday, July 04, 2010

ANCHORAGE - The Anchorage man and woman who have admitted in federal court to attacking an Alaska Native man and posting a video of the incident on YouTube have pleaded guilty in state court.

KTUU News reports that 19-year-old Robert Bruce Gum and 21-year-old Deanna Angelina Scaglione pleaded guilty Friday to assault and harassment charges.

Prosecutors say the pair taped themselves throwing eggs and a water bottle at the homeless Alaska Native from a car. Then, the pair got out and started beating the man, as well as, yelling racial slurs.
