Following a controversial play, several parents attending a Los Angeles-area high school football game allegedly went into the rival team’s locker room and beat several of the players.
As Sportsgrid points out, the incident stemmed from a Millikan High School player kicking a Lakewood High School player in the head after the latter lost his helmet during a play. When the referees monitoring the game didn’t call attention to the kick, several angry parents took matters into their own hands.
According to KTLA 5, “supporters of the Lakewood team, including adults, allegedly rushed past security and into a locker room used by Millikan players.”
An anonymous Millikan player told the Los Angeles-based station that he was struck in the forehead at the beginning of the attack. “I saw people screaming,” he said. “I saw one of our players get choked.”
Many of the players in the locker room, some who weren’t even on the field at the time of the contested play, were injured as a result of the incident. However, all of them were shaken up — enough to involve the Lakewood Sheriff’s Department.
