Conrad Alvin Barrett, 27, is escorted out of the Bob Casey Federal Courthouse Friday, Dec. 27,2 013, in Houston. Barrett was arrested the day before on federal hate crimes charges for allegedly shooting video of himself sucker-punching a 79-year-old black man in a "knockout game"-style attack. According to prosecutors, the attack happened Nov. 24 in Katy, but it wasn't until 12 days later that authorities connected the attack to the cellphone video of it.
