Last week, the father of a junior on a high school football team called the police to file assault charges, after a senior allegedly forced his son to partake in some kind of sick and twisted hazing ritual. The cops responded by looking at the evidence and dismissing it as nothing more than a bit of “locker room horseplay”. As you can imagine, there’s two versions to the story.
(We have no idea what’s going on here, but it has to be illegal in most states)
The police say that the senior - a student at Farmingdale High School in New York - smacked “the younger boy on the rear with the broomstick”, which would have only been some form of harassment, not assault, and that the senior’s one-week suspension from school was enough. The father, on the other hand, believed the senior tried to, well, force the broomstick into a very intimate area while his son was bent over. Oh, BroomstickGate, why do you have to be so complex?
