Mom wants bullying stopped
A woman met with an assistant principal at Carvers Bay High School Oct. 2 and reported her 15-year-old-son had possibly been assaulted by fellow students and football teammates.
The woman said her son was getting a ride home with his coach and some other teammates Sept. 30 when two of them started picking on him, poked him and pulled his shirt over his head.
While they were doing this they were hitting him on the butt, the woman told a deputy.

They said such incidents will not happen in the future.
