SOUTH EUCLID, OH (WOIO) - Ten local college football players now facing charges for an attack. An attack on another college athlete.
Charges against football players for Notre Dame College in South Euclid. An attack - ten on one.
The attack reportedly happened at an off-campus house on Ellison, just steps away from the Notre Dame College football field.
The ten have been hit with felony charges, including assault and kidnapping. Cuyahoga County prosecutors say the football players jumped on a Notre Dame baseball player leaving him with broken bones in his face.
The beating happened in late November but the indictment was just filed.
"We have a very strict student conduct policy and that goes above and beyond what the criminal and civil courts do so they'll have to answer to this at campus," said Brian Johnston.
Prosecutors say the beating happened after an argument over some property damage at a house party.
