    A Chicago high school football coach is in police custody, charged with misdemeanor simple assault for watching more than a dozen of his players attack a disabled teen.

    Fenger High School coach Cassius Chambers, 28, turned himself into police yesterday for an incident on Oct. 1 when more than 20 of his football players jumped Darion Jones, 16, outside of his Chicago home.

    One of the players had accused Jones of stealing his Nike flip-flops, Jones’ mother told Chicago’s NBC affiliate.

    Chambers and one of his assistants, Roscoe Pitts, watched the mêlée, but did nothing to stop it, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
