Although rumors that the baseball season has been canceled are not true, Muskogee High School and the administration are seeking answers in a case of a student being brutally beaten, the assault filmed and passed around to other students at the school.
The student, whose name we are withholding because he is a minor and the victim of a violent crime, was allegedly viciously beaten with at least one belt by members of the baseball team and possibly other assailants, though school officials will not confirm that detail. The district is now interviewing students and weighing possible criminal charges for students involved in the assault.
The district’s official response is that it can’t comment, citing “student privacy rights” as the reason for its silence, but assured it will “take the appropriate action.”
The video was allegedly distributed through SnapChat. Students report that they’ve been ordered to delete it from their phones.
