CHICO, Calif. -

A Chico teenager accused of attacking another teen then bragging about it on twitter says he did it.

Rodney Freeman pleaded no contest in a Butte County court on Friday.

Freeman is charged with beating 19-year-old Daniel Chesterman on February 8 in Chico.

After the assault, Freeman allegedly tweeted "I literally collapsed half of some kid's face last night #newsoftheday."

Chesterman's mother said they hoped this day would come, but they were not sure whether it would ever happen.

Freeman will be sentenced on November 9. He could get up to four years in prison.
