Football Players Accused in Ref Hit Say He Used Racial Slur

 

SAN ANTONIO (CBS News) – Two Texas football players accused of intentionally ramming into a referee during a high school game allege the referee directed racial slurs at them, school district officials said Tuesday.

The district, which previously suspended the two players, has placed an assistant coach on paid leave while it investigates allegations that he suggested there should be retaliation against the referee for missed calls, Northside Independent School District Superintendent Brian T. Woods said at a news conference.

The two suspended John Jay High School students, whose names aren’t being released, will go through a disciplinary hearing and the incident will be treated as an assault on a school official, according to the school district.

“The incident is shameful and in no way reflects who Northside ISD and Jay High School are,” Woods said.

The district, which has 105,000 students, is in the process of filing a complaint about the racial slur allegation with the Texas Association of Sports Officials, Woods said.
