You can’t be beating down an opponent with a helmet. You can go to jail for that and that is exactly what the police are decided right now.
Deadspin has the details.
The incident took place Friday night, during a game between Hamburg and Annville-Cleona in Lebanon County, Penn., near Harrisburg. During a third-quarter scrum following a fumble, Hamburg senior safety/QB Joseph Cominsky pulled the helmet off lineman Josh Hartman and hit him with it twice before being tackled.
Hartman just has a head laceration, but it could have been a lot worse.
