Christopher Cain, 18, was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault and robbery, according to a statement from police spokesman Carlos Campos.
White’s attackers have been identified as members of the 1029 Jack City Gang.
“Instead of letting this hold me back and bring me down ― how can it help prosper me, how can it help me make myself better, make my life better. Those are the steps now going forward in my life instead of sitting around,” White said.
Police have not released the names or suspected whereabouts of the two other alleged assailants, but and federal authorities are considering seeking federal hate crime charges against the suspects, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The attack on White was videotaped and posted online with the headline, “Dead Wrong: Man Wearing Skinny Jeans Gets Sucker Attacked & G’z Throw a Tire On Him for Being Gay.”
