A Houston teenager who admitted to punching people for social media likes has been granted a bond by the judge handling his case. Alford Lasean Thursday, Oct. 26, Lewis was charged with assault with bodily harm and aggravated robbery with a dangerous weapon for two-person occurrences.

“We take these cases extremely seriously at the district attorney’s office, and in this case, the facts were particularly troubling; these boys were out at a park where people enjoy the outdoors and are exercising and shouldn’t expect to run into any kind of trouble,” prosecutor Ashlea Sheridan told the media.

Lewis regrets frightening Wortham Park visitors that day, mainly because he did it for social media fame.

Houston teenager who admitted to punching people. The Harris County Sheriff’s Office stated Lewis attacked two people, punching one in the back of the head. Lewis had already patted another guy on the shoulder with a gun.


After startling the victim, Lewis pointed the firearm at him and demanded his phone, according to court filings. Lewis threatened to shoot the victim in the foot for not giving him his phone. The victim gave the youngster his cell phone.

“This man was out there doing what any Harris County citizen would do when these two males attempted to rob him at gunpoint,” Sheridan said.

Lewis was granted a $30,000 bail with the condition that he wear a GPS ankle monitor and be kept under house arrest after his release, despite the prosecution’s request for a higher value.

The court first set bail at $10,000. The court set bonds far lower than the prosecution’s recommendation of $75,000 for Lewis.

The Harris County District Attorney requested the bond adjustment. They won because Lewis acknowledged the offense, requiring an increase.

The episodes were worsened by Lewis’ buddy Kingston Miker, 18, videotaping them and laughing throughout each one. Lewis was labeled as the culprit in social media comments after one of the recordings was posted. Miker was arrested for the same crimes as Lewis.

“They did this for fun and posted it on social media, which is simply unacceptable, and I felt, given the circumstances, that the bond needed to be raised,” Sheridan said of her fight for the $20,000 bond increase.

The media reported that Lewis remarked, “I just made a mistake, and everybody makes mistakes,” before surrendering himself.

I wasn’t expecting it to go, so I left. I realize the video only shows the worst. But what people don’t see is that I shook his hand after and hugged him,” he stated to downplay his acts, which he did to earn likes and views on YouTube and TikTok.

Now, he hopes others learn from his errors. “Before you go out and do anything you feel is bad or could look bad, make sure people know – or don’t do it at all,” Lewis urged.
