Parents Rush Locker Room Following HS Football Game And Try To Beat Up Players
More high school football fun!
As if we haven't had our fill of shenanigans already (favorite so far: two players target ref and tackle him during game in Texas), now we have a new wrinkle. A player in a Los Angeles-area prep football game was kicked in the head after his helmet had fallen off, so in retaliation, several parents stormed the opposing team's locker room and started throwing punches.
No arrests so far, but the police are investigating and arrests are imminent, so we're told.
It was Lakewood High School vs. Millikan High School in Long Beach, CA on Friday night, and hings got chippy when a Millikan player appeared to kick Lakewood player in the head following a play. After the game, reportedly, four Lakewood parents rushed past security and entered the Millikan locker room. Two Millikan players were reportedly punched, and two more were grabbed by the neck, according to KTLA 5.
CBS-Los Angeles, on the player getting kicked on the field:
"He just punted him, like he was kicking a ball. I went to the refs, like how could you not see that?," a teammate who was on the field told CBSLA.com.
One parent, Roger Lands, told CBS: "As a parent of a player, if it was my son that got kicked in the face, I'd be very upset. And I would expect the school district to basically expel the player for doing that."
My proposal: cancel football at both schools. Replace with Pinewood Derby. Fixed.
