Man involved in fight with teen faces battery charges

News

Charges have been filed against a man accused of fighting with a teen in the middle of a busy street. 

Back in May, a viewer took video of John Moody fighting with a 17-year-old in the middle of a Rio Rancho intersection. 

Moody claims the teen was pushing a dirt bike and almost ran over his dog near the crosswalk. 

However, in lapel video from police, the boy says he acted in self-defense. 

Witnesses say Moody instigated the scuffle and was upset about how police handled the situation. 

He was charged with battery. It’s still unclear what charges the teen will face.
