ANDERSON CO., SC (WSPA) – Deputies have arrested a 17-year-old after they say he removed the victim’s clothes and forced him into a cheerleading uniform.
Bradley Kade Clardy, 17, has been charged with third-degree assault and battery for the incident that deputies say happened on Sept. 16.
According to an arrest warrant, the 14-year-old victim was assaulted during school hours at the Wren High School Football Stadium fieldhouse/multi-purpose room.
