Yes, football is a violent game, but a matchup on the gridiron between two high schools in Pennsylvania took it to a whole new – and possibly illegal – level.

During a game between Hamburg High School and Annville-Cleona High School last week, a Hamburg player tore the helmet off an opposing player and used it to hit him in the head.

The player was thrown out of the game and has been suspended for the team’s next game. Bigger problems may loom, though -- police are looking into the matter and are considering filing charges.
