CORINTH, Mississippi -- A man charged with beating up a gay man in Corinth, Mississippi says he snapped, not because the man was gay, but because of what he feared the man would reveal to the rest of the world.
James Scott faces assault charges for what he did to Devin Norman at the Corinth Walmart on Friday.
Norman and his supporters say Scott should be charged with more than assault. They want Scott to face hate crime charges, because they say he attacked Norman for being homosexual.
Scott sat down with WMC Action News 5's Michael Clark to tell his side of the story.
