Authorities: NY School Fight On Video Was Just ‘Slap Boxing’
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a cellphone video that shows a boy hitting another in a New York school bathroom didn't capture a crime — just two friends who got together for some "slap boxing."
Syracuse.com reports the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday neither boy was injured in the episode at North Syracuse Junior High School. Parents' and school administrators' became concerned after seeing the video on Facebook over the weekend.
In the video, one boy repeatedly strikes at another who's standing in a corner. After a few seconds, the boy in the corner says he thinks his mouth is bleeding, and the other boy backs off.
The North Syracuse School District has said it has started a disciplinary process.
