A Rome High School student, Antwion Deon Carey, 17 of Rome, was jailed this week after reports said he punched a 15 year-old child in the face.

Reports said that the victim was left with a bruised right eye and a busted nose.

Carey is charged with battery.

Carey, a football player for Rome High School, made national news earlier this year when he and several others helped a woman who was involved in a wreck in front of the high school.
