FORT WORTH (AP) — A North Texas man has pleaded guilty to a kidnapping charge, admitting that he abducted and severely beat a gay man he met through an online service.

Brice Johnson could be sentenced to up to life in prison and fined up to $250,000 for the abduction of a man court documents identify only as “A.K.” Prosecutors have agreed to drop a hate crime count the 19-year-old Springtown man faced in his indictment.

Johnson will remain in custody pending his Nov. 17 sentencing.

According to an affidavit, Armstrong used social media to invite the man to his home on Sept. 2, 2013. It alleged Johnson beat him because of his sexual orientation and threw him in his car trunk. A.K. was hospitalized for 10 days with multiple skull and facial fractures.
