Coach Beating Triggers Added Security

A community in east Georgia is still trying to come to terms with a brutal beating that took place two weeks ago after a high school football game. A melee broke-out between the players of Warren County and Hancock Central.

While trying to intervene, Warren County coach David Daniels suffered significant head and face injuries when a helmet struck his head. Witnesses say the blows came from an opposing player.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating whether criminal charges are due and, if so, against whom.

The incident brings to light issues of sportsmanship...and security.

One nearby school district, Richmond County, has responded with increased police presence at football games. The system’s Director of Athletics George Bailey spoke to GPB's Edgar Treiguts.
