‘Smack cam’ suspects identified, police say


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Three people suspected of taking part in a ‘smack cam’ incident at a local Wendy’s have been identified, according to Austin police.

No arrests have been made and formal charges against the three are pending.

Calaybra Jones, 16, was working the register at the store near US Highway 183 and Cameron Road when a boy came in and smacked her in the face while someone else filmed the incident.

“I’m sad,” said Jones, recalling the incident. “I’m angry. It’s just shocking that they would do that to someone that they don’t even know.”

The video was originally posted to YouTube by an account associated with Austin rapper Kade Fresco, but Fresco has not responded to KXAN’s request for an interview at this time. The video was later removed from the site.
