An East Texas teenager says he was attacked at school for wearing a political t-shirt.
On Friday, Robert E. Lee student Ryan Oster says he wore a NO-bama shirt. He says two black students threatened him, telling him to take it off. He says he went to the restroom to take it off, but was attacked anyway.
"As soon as I got it off, this one kid pushed me into one of the bathroom stalls and started hitting me in my face a couple of times and my ribs and my chest," said Oster.
"My son couldn't even go to the football game on Friday night because he was scared to go there. It shouldn't be that way," said Oster's father, Paul Oster.
We spoke with Tyler ISD this afternoon, who said this is an unfortunate incident and that it is very early in their investigation. They also say that at this point, one student has been charged with class A assault.
