A 4th grader is being charged with assault after hitting his classmate in the head with a ball while playing a game of dodge ball. The boy endured a black eye, bruised nose and a concussion due to a medical condition he suffers from. This was the second time he was injured at school.

The 4th grader who threw the ball was suspended for a day when the incident took place back in April. The 4th grader and the other children at the school had no prior knowledge that the young boy suffered from a medical condition that requires no physical contact.
