No, George Alfred Mangus is not a big name college football coach, but he is now part of a big time Division I football program, so it probably doesn’t look good to be caught peeing on the curb outside a restaurant by the cops.
Not much to this story . . . yet, but when you have allegations that high school football players are taunting a younger teammate with water bottles filled with urine, that does get our attention. Especially when it’s in the same neck of the woods where the infamous Carmel High School incident from earlier this year. You’d think kids at other schools around there would learn something from this (heck, you’d think their coaches would be out of their minds worrying about it) but apparently not.
Here’s what little we know from WISH-TV (link includes video clip):
Police and school officials are investigating a complaint at Hamilton Southeastern that allegedly happened on the bus after a football loss on Friday. It’s alleged two seniors, stars on the football team, taunted a 15-year-old. We’re told, the incident involved water bottles filled with urine.
24 Hour News 8 was first on this story and first to speak with the alleged victim’s family. Ramon Coleman, the alleged victim’s brother said, “Everybody needs to know what happened on that bus…for them to be at schoo and practicing…no.”
The family speaking is out hoping as they say — ‘it isn’t brushed under the rug’.
Ha, ha, ha. Funny. Had someone done that to a complete strangers drink–say at a fast food restaurant–that would be tampering with a consumer product, a felony.
They got away with it until last month when someone opened their big mouth and told some other students about the prank, and word eventually got to school officials. The real joke here? While most were suspended from extra-curricular activities this spring, they will be able to be cheerleaders next fall.
You thoughts on the humor of this prank in the comments section below.
District officials said at least two girls got in-school suspensions and others lesser punishments, but they would not specify how many students were involved. The girls will not be allowed to participate in cheerleading events through the end of the school year but will be allowed to participate next school year. A parent whose daughter drank the urine-tainted beverage said those involved should be permanently removed from the team. “They shouldn’t be allowed to represent Saginaw,” said the father, who did not want to be identified to protect his daughter’s identity.
The incident occurred during a basketball game last winter, the parent said. He said at least one cheerleader urinated into a cup and then mixed the urine into drinks bought at a nearby restaurant. Other cheerleaders encouraged her to give the tainted drinks to teammates at the game, the parent said. When the girls drinking the sodas noticed an unusual taste, they were told that it was from a tart candy mixed into the drink, he said.
“The girls said they were just joking around,” the father said. “It’s not a good joke to me.”
