"Knockout game" arrest news is coming from Houston. This "knockout game" arrest was of Conrad Alvin Barrett, who has been accused of an unprovoked attack on Nov. 24 in Katy, Texas. According to a report from MSN on Friday (Dec. 27), Barrett allegedly sucker-punched a 79-year-old black man. He might have gotten away with it to, but he decided to show a cellphone video of the attack to an off-duty arson investigator.

During the attack, the victim lost three teeth and had his jaw broken in two places. He had to remain in the hospital for more than four days, going through surgery to repair the damage to his jaw. The evidence is pretty stacked against Barrett in this case, as he admitted to perpetrating the crime, has his voice on video attacking the unsuspecting stranger, and had stated he was attempting to get on national television with his alleged crime.

The hate crime charge that stems from this "knockout game" arrest carries with it a sentence of up to 10 years in prison as well as a fine of up to $250,000. The "game" as it is being called involves someone viciously attacking a stranger and trying to knock them out with one punch. What this arrest and possible jail time associated with it could do is stem the recent increase in reports of this taking place around the country.
