LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Las Vegas father accused of jumping into a fight involving his son and another student will be released without bail from jail but will be on electronic monitoring.

Jose Montes, 39, was in Las Vegas Justice Court Tuesday morning for his initial appearance. He is facing five charges including child abuse, battery, and coercion.

A video of the fight when viral on social media after it happened on April 12 near Dell H. Robison Middle School. The video showed a man identified as Montes kicking a student, who was on the ground, in the head.

Judge Rebecca Saxe said the court has concerns with the “extremely violent nature of the charges.”

She did order Montes place on mid-level electronic monitoring and to not have any contact with the 13-year-old victim or his family.

Defense attorney James Gallo said Montes went to pick up his son from school when the fight happened nearby.  

“My understanding is the victim doesn’t even go to the school. He came there just to confront my client’s child. When he got there his son was in the process of being jumped and he came in and got involved in it and there’s a lot of things that occurred at that point,” he said.

The victim’s mother, Melissa Rodriquez, told 8 News Now she believes the fight was a random confrontation. She does admit her son has been involved in fighting which has resulted in him no longer being a student at Robison Middle School. She also said her son has been a victim of bullying.

The next court date in the case is set for Thursday, April 20.
