Teen Faces 10 Years After Sucker Punching Basketball Opponent

The high school basketball player who sucker-punched an opposing player during postgame handshakes was arrested charged with a felony Wednesday.

The 17-year-old has been charged with felony willful injury and has a court hearing on Dec. 13. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted on the charge.
