Martinez Police Investigate High School Hazing Incident

MARTINEZ (AP) — Police in Martinez are investigating a high school hazing incident in which a group of football players allegedly beat up a 15-year-old teammate in a locker room.

School officials say seven members of the freshman boys’ football team were suspended from Alhambra High School last week. The Sept. 29 incident was captured on cell phone video, which was used to identify the perpetrators.

Officials say the players taped the victim’s legs together, held him down and punched him several times before reporting to practice without telling the coach.

The victim told his parents, who notified administrators the next day.

Assistant Superintendent Rick Rubino told the Contra Costa Times that the victim’s feelings were hurt but he did not sustain any physical injuries.

    Welcome to almost pro football. He was attacked by a herd of Munchkins. For those who missed “Wizard of Oz,” may I clarify what a Munchkin is? Better yet read the book or see the movie. Then you may tell me what a Munchkin is…
