Dad says coach videotaped son being beaten by teammates
October 17, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A father is suing the Chicago public school district saying his son was beaten by fellow students and the incident was videotaped by a coach.
The boy was freshman football player at Prosser Career Academy when the bullying allegedly happened a year ago.
The attorney for the family says the student was beaten with belts and taunted after he left the practice field because of shortness of breath. He has asthma.
Chicago Public Schools says it can't comment on pending litigation, but also said bullying and hazing are not tolerated by the district.
