New details were released Wednesday in the case of a local football coach accused of choking a student.
Desmoin Cooksey was fired from Lawrence Central High School where he served as an assistant football coach.
The alleged victim claims Cooksey got angry during a discussion and put him in a headlock.
While the school has already taken action, the alleged victim’s attorney is questioning the work of the police department after investigators asked the teen to take a lie detector test.
“I believe there is enough evidence and I do think that that is bizarre that they would ask for a lie detector test from these students,” said the attorney.
The whole incident started when Cooksey approached the teen, along with two other students, about a rumor.
