  • PLATTE CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri high school football player is charged with assault for allegedly ripping off another player’s helmet and hitting him in the head with it during a game, causing a concussion.

    Platte County prosecutor Eric Zahnd says 17-year-old Colin W. Byrd, of Platte County High School, was charged Tuesday with misdemeanor assault for the Oct. 18 incident during a game against Winnetonka High School.

    Byrd’s lawyer Anthony Bologna said it’s a “very unfortunate incident” that his office has yet to fully investigate.
