According to the complaint, a woman told police her two sons were staying with their father in Fitchburg during spring break when the video was made. It shows one boy choking his younger brother into unconsciousness, with the father telling his children how to do the maneuver, authorities allege.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports Medina was jailed Friday on $3,000 bail. He was ordered not to have any unsupervised contact with any children.
