Two students at Livingston High School were booked into the Polk County Jail Thursday morning, each receiving the same charge.
Unlawful restraint of someone less than 17 years of age was the charge for both Jacob Newman Haynes, 18, of Livingston, and Landon Eugene Leggett, 17, of Goodrich.
Through a release from last week, Livingston ISD said an investigation began after the district official were notified earlier this month.
“Livingston ISD Superintendent Dr. Brent Hawkins confirms that on April 5, 2022, the Livingston administration was made aware of allegations of inappropriate contact by a student-athlete in the LHS baseball program toward another player. An investigation was immediately commenced, and remedial measures were put in place to ensure the safety of all LISD students, including removing the alleged offender from the program until the investigation is complete.”
The Enterprise has learned that the two were involved in an altercation with a younger student-athlete in the Livingston program.
Leggett and Haynes have been held out of athletic competition since last week. Starters on the varsity baseball team, the two helped the Lions to what is now a 7-1 district record, good for first place in 21-4A.
