Tampa, Florida- Hiding his face, only one of the three teens accused of seriously injuring a Robinson High School runner showed up Thursday in court. 

Attorneys for Daniel Borgeson, Patrick Wasp, and Tyler Metzger all agreed on behalf of their clients to an intervention program for first time offenders. 

The deal includes 100 hours of community service, anger management classes, along with a required psychological evaluation and treatment.

Back in May, the three were arrested on felony battery charges after police say the teens threw eggs from a moving SUV driving along Tampa's popular Bayshore Boulevard. One egg hit 17-year-old Noah Grant, who was running with his cross country team. 

It hit him so hard it left shell fragments lodged in his eye ball.

"We heard something that sounded like glass breaking and then we heard Noah scream," said Noah's twin brother, who witnessed what happened.

Even worse, the SUV the teens were driving spun around making a second pass tossing more eggs. Noah suffered a concussion and hit his head on the cement after falling. 

Police got complaints from others hit, then finally arrested the three teens after getting a tip a group of high school students purchased 5 dozen eggs the night before.

Each teen also agreed to pay Noah $800, some might say a small price to pay, for all the pain.
