Steffon Rainey accused of breaking teen’s jaw during Plaza chaos
Steffon Rainey and Rashid Thompson admitted to police that they assaulted a 16-year-old boy in the face in Winstead’s parking lot on April 10.
Jackson County prosecutors charged Rainey, 19, and Thompson, 17, each with first-degree assault Wednesday.
Police highlighted the incident as one of the lowlights of the havoc on the Plaza that Saturday night (which included a girl in a prom dress getting dunked like a witch in the Cheesecake Factory’s fountain and a couple getting beaten in a parking garage). Streets were closed. Police used pepper spray. A
overhead. It was a mess.
The victim suffered a broken jaw, fractured orbital floor and a hematoma under his scalp. His injuries required surgery.
