However the verbal dispute started, an adult beating up a 16 year old is a bully and a coward. I hope they find him and lock him up for at least 16 years!

Teenager was taught a lesson in humility. Respect your elders. I’m sorry did the teenager say something I couldn’t understand his muffled broken jaw response.
