Guy who gets hit with drink pitcher?


I didn't get who the guy Devlin was so upset about getting smacked in the head. The only thing I could figure was a brother. Kind of strange a character coming into the movie just for a head cracking and nothing else.
Any ideas?

Devlin was a refined young lady dating a boy from the other side of the tracks. Her boyfriend was trying to avoid the societal pressure of being in a gang even though everyone thought of him as a gang-banger because he hung out with a close knit group of school chums in a neighborhood of street gangs. When she was out with her friends and Nic, an acquaintance of hers decided to pick a fight with Nic because of his undeserved reputation of a street fighter. When Nic defended himself by breaking the pitcher over his face, she was appalled by this act of violence.
