Victim was Dating Suspect’s Daughter
KING CITY—The Monterey County District Attorney’s Office issued an arrest warrant for a King City High School Teacher accused of severely beat a 15-year-old student after he found him in a compromising position with his daughter. 45-year-old King City resident Michael Ciccarelli sits in a Monterey County Jail cell awaiting arraignment.
Two 15-year-old students, who just happen to be dating, were absent from wrestling practice on Thursday, November 21. Their teacher and coach, Michael Ciccarelli, went to the absent boy student’s home. Ciccarelli knew that the young man was dating his 15-year-old daughter, who was the other student absent from practice that day.
Ciccarelli entered the student’s residence, looking for the two wrestlers. When he heard noise coming from the student’s bedroom, he gained access by knocking the door off its hinges.
Once inside the bedroom he found the boy locked in a compromising position with his daughter. Ciccarelli flew into a rage and began to strike the 15-year-old student in the face with a closed fist.
Ciccarelli hit the teenager several times in the face, and at one point even kicked the boy in the face as he laid on the ground. The juvenile was transported to Mee Memorial Hospital in King City and was treated for a broken nose and other injures sustained by the beating.
“We have turned the case over to the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office.” Monterey County Sheriff’s Commander Mike Burns said, “It is up to them to file the necessary charges.”
The incident was report to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office the next day. A report was filed. The Monterey County District Attorney’s Office reviewed the case and issued the warrant for Ciccarelli.
