BRADENTON, FL-  Two Bradenton men face multiple charges after police say they were involved in beating up a man, videotaping it and then posting it on facebook.

It happened at the Bradenton Riverwalk skatepark earlier this week.  Reportedly, 20 year old Rubier Zaldivar videotaped 19 year old Devin Wilson beating a man who police say is disabled.

During the alleged attack the victim passes out numerous times while Wilson reportedly stomps on the victim's head.  Police say Zaldivar taped the beating on his cellphone, and is reportedly encouraging Wilson to continue beating the victim.

Police received a tip the video had been posted on Facebook.  After viewing it, they arrested the two men.  Both face charges of abuse of a disabled person.
