Police were called to Crittenden Middle School on Friday to arrest a 14-year-old boy for angrily throwing a football at another boy's leg during a football game.
Police spokesperson Steve McCoy said school administrators called the police at 2:14 p.m. last Friday to report the incident. The unnamed 13-year-old hit in the leg by the football was uninjured.
There was no real explanation as to why the incident was considered serious enough to involve police. The police report states that the unnamed juvenile suspect appeared "angry." He was arrested for assault and released to his parents.
Crittenden Middle School Principal Karen Robinson did not respond to phone calls by press time.
