A video gone viral, showing a teen seemingly taunting a downtown street guy, has sparked outrage in the community.  But, in an instant, that same video turned the teen's life upside down, his family now receiving multiple death threats.  Tonight his mother speaks out on the video, her son and what really happened.  NBC5's Laura Cavanaugh reports.


Medford Police cited the 13 year-old for Disorderly Conduct  and banned him from Fichtner Mainwaring park for 30 days.  Meanwhile Downtown Dan has gone on the record saying he never felt harassed and, while he appreciates the love, he said that he hopes that the community can put the issue to rest.
