Transcript for High School Football Player May Face Criminal Charges for What He Did During a Game
We turn now to an outrage involving your money. U.s. Taxpayer dollars, a half billion, earmarked to train rebels taking on Isis. But tonight, the number of fighters actually ready? Four or five. So, let's get right to ABC's chief global affairs criminal charges. Here's ABC's linsey Davis. Reporter: Police now watching this video frame by frame to determine if a new Jersey high school student should face criminal charges. Watch as number 1 for new Jersey's linden high school ends up holding the helmet of number 73 from immaculata. He swings the helmet and hits the opponent right in the head. That senior was allowed to finish the game, but today he's off the team. The board of education issuing this statement -- "The brutal action taken by this young man is simply unacceptable and will not be condoned." Tonight, number 73 recovering after getting ten stitches in his head. A recent rash of incidents of unsportsmanlike conduct on the gridiron across the country. The intensity is there. So iPhones mixed with an increased pressure, which leads to more misbehavior and this is what you get. Reporter: Tonight, immaculata praising their student's reaction, simply walking away with his hands up. While immaculata is praising its student, the school here is suspending the linden senior. David? Linsey, thank you.
