What happened

In December 2021, Cole Hagan was brutally attacked after being lured outside a home during a party in Lake Jackson. He suffered multiple skull fractures and a broken collarbone. He had to be sedated and put on a ventilator due to his injuries.

Ayden Holland, Logan Huber and Mitchell were all charged with aggravated assault in connection to the incident.


Hagan's family filed a lawsuit against the alleged attackers. The lawsuit, filed in Brazoria County, seeks $50 million in damages from the alleged attackers and more than a dozen others, claiming they knew about plans to "attack Cole Hagan."

At the time of the attack, Mitchell was 17, Huber was 17, and Holland was 18. They were all named as defendants in the suit along with four other teens and their parents.

The suit also accuses several people of negligence, claiming they knew or should have known about the plan to attack Hagan.

The father of one of the other teens accused in the beating was also accused of giving alcohol to minors. The lawsuit claims the teens’ intoxication caused injury to Cole.
