Players Disciplined For Urinating In Public
PEWAUKEE – JV football players for New Berlin Eisenhower will be disciplined for urinating in public.
The JV players relieved themselves in view of people at Pewaukee High School Monday.
TMJ4's Charles Benson said the players got a one game suspension.
Their coaches will also be suspended for one game each on a rotating basis.
During halftime at Monday night's JV football game, seven New Berlin players apparently urinated just next to Pewaukee’s football field. People in the stands got a clear view of the whole thing.
Some Pewaukee High parents think the players should be punished.
"Maybe make them go around and clean up the grounds at Pewaukee,” parent Shanda Hunt suggested.
The kids told school officials the bathrooms were locked before the game, so they assumed they were still locked during halftime. They say they didn't mean to offend anyone.
"Sounds like there might have been some confusion as to whether or not the bathrooms were available, but it's not something that needed to happen out in open public,” Pewaukee resident Carey Boehm said.
There is some bad blood between the two teams. Last year, New Berlin Eisenhower's varsity coach was suspended for allegedly shoving a Pewaukee player who some say head butted him. That's why some don't believe the players excuse.
"It sounds convenient. It sounds like a good excuse. When there's seven kids that do it, it's a group mentality and I probably think it was more intentional than they want others to think,” Hunt said.
"It sounds like it's probably not that big of a deal, but nobody wants to have their school grounds urinated on like that, obviously it is kind of a slap in the face,” Boehm said.
