This is wild.

A player on Frederick Douglass High School’s football team was charged with attempted murder Thursday in a brutal attack on a teammate.

The attack, which left the victim hospitalized and facing surgery, was reportedly over a helmet visor. The attack was reportedly captured on video and posted online.

Sean Johnson, 17, faces attempted murder, assault and other charges after he was seen on video punching his teammate in the head and face and then stomping on his head.

From the Baltimore Sun:

According to charging documents, the attack occurred after Johnson approached his teammate in the cafeteria and asked if he stole the visor from his football helmet.

After the victim repeatedly denied having taken it, Johnson began “hitting [him] in the face causing him to fall to the floor unconscious,” charging documents said.

A school police officer wrote that when he and other staff members dispersed the crowd, the victim “was having a seizure while lying in a pool of his own blood.”

Johnson’s teammate suffered a concussion, a nose fracture and would likely need facial surgery.
