STOKES COUNTY, N.C. (WFLA/CNN) - A group of motorcyclists in North Carolina came together this week to show their support for a bullied teenager.
Dozens of members of the "Bikers Against Bullies" group escorted 17-year-old Michael Wilson to South Stokes High School on Friday.
Wilson's family told WXII the boy is legally blind and was bullied at school recently. They said his classmates laughed at him after a student broke his phone with a brick during a masonry class. WXII reports the incident was caught on camera.
After the biker group dropped Wilson off at school on Friday, members held a silent, peaceful protest to share their message.
"We teach nonviolence and we address the bullying issue at all schools," Carl Kress said. "Be a friend, be a biker, not a bully."
"We empower children to respect each other," Amber Wilson added. "A mutual respect."
The school district disciplined the students involved in the bullying incident. The sheriff's office is investigating one of the students for possible criminal charges.
