SALT LAKE COUNTY -- Sheriff's deputies have arrested a second suspect in a brutal beating that happened over the weekend.

Rodney Wright, of Magna, is in intensive care where he's being treated for head trauma. Investigators say he was beaten after he yelled at a driver in his neighborhood to slow down.

After the assault, a witness followed the attacker's car and led deputies to a house in Magna where they arrested the 17-year-old driver. On Tuesday, deputies found the passenger, who is also 17, at school.

Both teens face charges of aggravated assault.
