Wisconsin student charged with felony battery after dodgeball game

A dodgeball game in Wisconsin turned to blows and led to a 18-year-old student getting charged with felony battery.

Mike Longaecker of the Forum News Service:

According to the complaint, the victim and his mother reported the incident to police in Ellsworth, which is southwest of River Falls.

The victim’s mother told police that a CT scan revealed that the boy, who was 16 at the time, had suffered a facial fracture.

He said he and Sigler were playing dodgeball during gym class. Sigler and three other boys were throwing balls at him, so he hurled a ball back at Sigler.

Sigler retrieved a couple of balls and threw them at the victim, the boy said, but “when Jacob ran out of balls, Jacob closed his fist and punched (the victim) in the face.” He said he was knocked to the ground by the punch. One of the other boys confronted Sigler after the punch, the victim said.
