CARLISLE, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say an Iowa high school basketball player has been arrested following an apparent assault on an opposing player at the end of a game as the two teams lined up to shake hands.

The attack reportedly followed a boys' high school basketball game between Nevada High School and Carlisle High School in Carlisle's gym Tuesday night.

A video that has been viewed millions of times on Twitter shows a Carlisle player repeatedly punch a Nevada player who had his hand extended for a handshake. The Nevada player suffered a concussion and required stitches for a cut to his mouth.

The 17-year-old Carlisle player faces a felony charge of willful injury.
