La Verne police investigating potential assault of student after high school football game

The La Verne Police Department says it's investigating a claim that at least one Damien High School football coach battered an opposing player after a game this weekend. 

Damien High played Bishop Amat Memorial in La Verne Friday night. Video from after the game shows players and coaches on both sides shouting and shoving. Jesse Ramos said his son, 19-year-old senior Aiden Ramos, told him that two Damien coaches confronted him after the game. 

Jesse Ramos said that according to his son, one of the coaches grabbed his shoulder pad and ripped off his helmet. The interaction apparently left the student with a bruise under his eye. 

SUGGESTED: Man shot by deputy in Rancho Cucamonga, deputy injured

The La Verne Police Department said it's actively investigating Ramos' claims, but that it has no other information at this time.

In a statement, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles said it "is working with both high schools and fully cooperating with the police department as the matter is investigated."

Ramos said his son Aiden, a running back, was offered numerous athletic scholarships and had committed to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
