A horrific in-game incident during a Pennsylvania football game could lead to criminal charges after a player ripped the helmet off one of his opponents during a scuffle and proceeded to beat his fellow teenager with it.

As reported by Susquehanna Valley NBC affiliate WGAL and PennLive, among other sources, Hamburg (Pa.) High senior quarterback and safety Joey Cominsky ripped the helmet off of Annville-Cleona lineman Josh Hartmann during an on-field skirmish between the two squads. What happened next was horrifying, as Cominsky raised the helmet and began to strike Hartmann in the head with the piece of sporting equipment.

The disturbing incident was captured on video and local police have launched an investigation into the attack, with a view toward pursuing charges against the Hamburg teenager.

"The police are doing their investigation, and thatís where it stands at this point," Annville-Cleona athletic director Tommy Long told PennLive. "Thatís about all I can tell you.

"It's always disappointing when you see something like this. You certainly don't want to see a situation like this within the lines of a game -- football, basketball, wrestling, whatever."

Wow. This kid should never be allowed to participate in high school athletics ever again. He could have killed the other kid with a single blow from that helmet. Stupid.

I'd even go out on a limb and say that it sucks to get beaten over the head with anybody's helmet.

That kid should have to publicly apologize face to face with the guy he whacked over the head. Anything less and he should be flat out banned from sports. It's pretty messed up to hit someone with your helmet but when you're pissed off and you're adrenaline is up and you're playing a violent contact sport I can see the mistake. Generally you see fist fights, using a helmet was taking things way too far but if it's an isolated incident and this kid really regrets it everyone deserves a second chance. We also didn't really see very well what started the whole thing. I'm not saying hitting him with the helmet was okay but perhaps the lineman did something to set the guy off. I know some lineman I played against were pretty damned dirty. Punching in the ribs, hitting in the balls, etc...
