LYNN (CBS) – Lynn Police are warning students not to play a kicking game that has led to criminal charges against at least one student. The game is called “Big Booting.”

“One student would walk behind an unsuspecting student and kick them in the back of the head,” says Lynn Police Lt. Chris Kelly.

Lt. Kelly says at least two incidents have been reported at the Marshall Middle School.

“At this time we don’t know if they invented this game or if they saw it somewhere else,” says Lt. Kelly. “Either way it’s unacceptable behavior.”

The last incident happened Tuesday. A 15-year old student was sitting in a classroom, when a classmate walked up and kicked him in the back of the head.

“It actually left an impression on the back of his head, he had to go to the nurse’s office,” says Lt. Kelly.

The student who allegedly did it faces a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in juvenile court. He’s also been suspended from the school.
