High School Student Gets Head Smashed Into Curb

`A 17-year-old boy was sent to the hospital after he received a brutal beating, in the form of a new punishment called “curbing.”

Gavin Lyon, a senior at Bingham High School, was beaten last Friday night. Family and friends believe he was “curbed” – a violent maneuver where a person’s head is placed against a concrete curb on a street, and someone steps on the back of the head. In most cases, this procedure causes the jaw to break along with several teeth. [..]

Gavin sustained a broken jaw, several broken teeth, a fractured neck and his sinus cavity was crushed. Doctors have also placed a titanium plate inside of his head.’
