Eric Monson of Tujunga faces 12 felony counts for assault with a deadly weapon, Kevin Yuenyongsakul of Los Angeles faces five and Julian Stephens of Studio City is facing two, including an additional charge for committing a felony while out on bail.

All three will be arraigned in Los Angeles Superior Court in Burbank on Friday morning at 8:30 a.m.

Two 17-year-olds were also arrested Feb. 2 in connection with the paintball hits when the Burbank Police Department served warrants on their homes, but their names have not been released because they are minors.
