A 14 year old Davidson High School football player had his arm broken during a beating by his teammates.
The incident took place last friday and was recorded. Four of the players who handed out the beating have been suspended.
A video posted online showed several players assaulting one player, who was on the ground in the locker room.
The player’s parents confirmed to Fox 10 that their son, a 14-year-old minor, suffered a broken arm in the altercation.
Mobile police spokesperson Charlette Solis said police responded to the area of Pleasant Road, where Davidson High School is located, at approximately 4:30 p.m. Friday in reference to an assault complaint.
Solis confirmed in the e-mail to AL.com that the victim stated he was headed to the locker room and one of the leaders of the team pushed him into the locker room and about 20 other upperclassmen started hitting, kicking and physically jumping on top of him after practice.
Davidson head coach Fred Riley, who has been the head coach of the Warriors for the past 14 years, said he could not comment on the incident.
There were way more than four players involved in the beating. They should shut the entire program down until they finish the investigation.
