ANNVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Police have opened a criminal investigation after a high school football player ripped the helmet off an opposing player and beat him over the head with it during a game in central Pennsylvania.
The encounter happened during Friday night's game at Annville-Cleona Secondary School near Lebanon. Video aired by WGAL-TV (http://bit.ly/18UpWhO ) shows Hamburg quarterback Joey Cominsky ripping the helmet off Annville-Cleona lineman Josh Hartman, then hitting him with it at least twice.
Annville-Cleona's Taylor Prentice jumps in late and throws several punches. Cominsky and Prentice were ejected from the game.
Hartman suffered a cut on top of his head but was otherwise OK.
South Annville Township Police Chief Ben Sutcliffe says police are investigating. No charges have been filed.
Under league rules, Cominsky and Prentice will miss the next game.
