A high school football game took a violent turn on Sept. 25 when a player from Millikan High School appeared to kick a Lakewood High School player in the head after he lost his helmet (videos below).
No penalty was called by the referees, but two Lakewood players told CBS Los Angeles that they witnessed the incident.
According to USA TODAY High School Sports, the Millikan Football Facebook page posted a statement (which was later removed) about some post-game violence: "A Lakewood player’s family pushed the security guard aside and then attacked four of our players. Two were struck in the face and two were grabbed by the neck. Physically bruised but I am sure emotionally not okay. This all happened in less than 30 seconds and the family was out before the coach and trainer could do something. Security did nothing to stop the family from leaving."
The Millikan Football Facebook page claimed that arrests were the next step, notes CBS Los Angeles, but the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department had not been notified of the incident as of Sept. 28, reports USA TODAY High School Sports.
