Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman confirmed that his office will charge Adam Chumley, 17, of Acworth, with battery after an alleged attack during a football game with Loganville Christian Academy last Friday. Chumley is a lineman on the Northside Christian Academy football team.
The alleged attack happened while LCA was winning, 33-0.
According to the report, Chumley pulled the helmet off LCA player Jarrett Briscoe, 14, and began hitting him on the head with it.
According to Briscoe's mother, he suffered a possible concussion. He has headaches and nausea and vomited throughout the weekend. Briscoe will not play football for a month as a precaution.
Doug Monda, chief financial officer of Loganville Christian Academy, said, "I think everyone was pretty shocked and as a Christian school you don't ever want to be involved in an altercation like that with another Christian School for that matter."
Sheriff Chapman said this incident was more severe than most other fights on the football field because Chumley used a helmet as a weapon.
According to its website, Northside Christian Academy is an online school in Woodstock. The director of the school would not comment.
