“The fool was her,” said one neighbor after seeing her put into a police cruiser with cuffs on.

Now, the viral video stands with over 75,000 views since April sprouted.

ESPN has broken this story about Rutgers head basketball coach Mike Rice abusing and berating players. He was recently suspended for three games last winter for his behavior at practices. The school wasn’t specific why.

This new security camera video is why. On the video, Rice is seen physically and verbally abusing the students, shoving them, pulling them by their shirts, and calling them slurs. He may be the next Bobby Knight

For some reason, it seems NCAA coaches get away with behavior that even drill sergeants wouldn’t be able to get away with.

Now, the video has instantly gone viral in the sports world, instantly amassing over 100,000 hits, and is further featured on ESPNCBSSports, and CNN
