BROOKLYN, NY — A school athletic field custodian is fired after officials discovered his involvement in an athletic kickback scandal, according to the New York Post.
Romonte Sutton, a veteran custodian for Boys & Girls High School, squeezed community youth-soccer coaches for after-hours practices or games on the school''s athletic fields, the article stated.
According to the article, Sutton demanded anywhere between $75 to $150 for each use of the fields after school or on weekends.
"If you did not pay Sutton, he locked up the field and you were not allowed to use it," one coach complained.
Sutton has denied the allegations, saying, "There was no evidence of anything. It was a bad investigation. It was just people who wanted to use the field and they couldn''t get permission."
