Another incident at a local high school football game, this time involving
students from Dallas Area High School, has grabbed news headlines.
Times-Tribune reports that the Wyoming County district attorney's office is investigating
reports that members of the Dallas High School football team urinated
on the tennis courts at Tunkhannock High School during halftime at a recent game.
Tunkhannock's district superintendent reportedly supports the investigation,
rejecting the idea that the two districts could resolve the situation
informally via conversations between the schools' principals and athletic
directors. In fact, he intends to take things a step further, contacting the
Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) to see if they, too, will take action against the students.
Without condoning the alleged activity (yuck - what were you thinking?),
I wonder whether this incident really requires getting these kids involved
with the courts.
I know that if my kid were being investigated, I would hire a lawyer immediately.
