Kaukauna Police responded to the incident today saying what happened to Matt Bent's son could be classified as horse-play. Both middle schooler's were in gym class wrestling when the boy was apparently "body-slammed" to the ground.
"They're a young age, they aren't accomplished as wrestlers yet and that's what we believe happened," says Chief of Police John Manion.
After this Facebook photo of Bent and his son got over 400,000 shares, Police Chief John Manion says he received death threats with people jumping to conclusions before the investigation was over.
"At least hear both sides of the story before you start to commit yourself to essentially criminal acts that you're doing," says Manion.
Matt Bent says this isn't an isolated incident and he hasn't had much contact with school administrators on the matter.
Cassandra Renkas of Kaukauna says bullying could happen to any person's child including her son Logan.
"I'm very worried about that and that's why i'm hoping things you know will change, because i don't want my son to be bullied. That's my worst fear," says Renkas.
Now with the case in the school's hands, Renkas says "I hope the school districts do their part to stand up to that."
Police say their investigation is over.
Chief Manion says he has also tried to reach out to Matt Bent about the incident, however they say Bent has not responded.
