San Jose State football player suspended for striking a teammate

SAN JOSE, Calif. - A San Jose State University football player was suspended after allegedly striking a teammate across the face with a skateboard, reported CBS San Francisco.

According to the station, Chad Miller, a freshman football player at the school, suffered several broken bones in his face after being struck by a teammate in a campus dorm Tuesday evening.

Miller said in a tweet he "didn't get in a fight or get beat up. My 'teammate' hit me in my face with his skateboard when I wasn't looking." The tweet has since been deleted, the station reported.

Miller went to the hospital. The player accused of hitting Miller has been suspended by the team.

This is not the first incident for the San Jose State football team in the past few weeks. Police arrested freshman Kanya Bell last week, after he allegedly hit a woman on campus. The Spartans have since kicked Bell off the team, CBS San Francisco reported.
