Tag leads to lawsuit

A playground fight which occurred in physical education during a game of tag has led to a lawsuit by an elementary-school student and his mother against the Tucson Unified School District.

The student was attacked while playing tag. He was knocked to the ground, kicked which severely lacerated his spleen, said plaintiff's attorney Richard Gonzales. The victim ended up staying 6 days in the hospital.

The victim's mother accused the school district of negligence because the boy who allegedly attacked her son had a history of behavioral issues, had been placed "on restriction" and wasn't supposed to be participating in the class.
