According to the Police Department in Marble Falls, Texas a defensive back charges full-speed, knocking his blindsided target to the ground. The defensive back’s fellow teammate follows moments later by diving in helmet-first.

The actions described above sounds harmless however it could land the players in jail since the target was actually a game official.  No arrests had been made as of Monday however authorities are investigating the incident as well as the the two players in question.

The incident began during the Friday night game, when both teammates were ejected. According to Stan Laing, the executive director for athletics in the Northside Independent School District that includes John Jay and 11 other San Antonio-area high schools both players have since been suspended from the Mustangs team and from school.

The district will address the matter in more detail Tuesday, when schools reopen after the Labor Day holiday.  Pascual Gonzalez, the chief spokesman for Northside schools, said this will include interviewing game officials, coaches and students about the incident.

The investigation is being done in conjunction with the University Interscholastic League, which oversees athletics in Texas public schools.
