WAYNE - A Wayne Hills High School football player, who was among nine charged in connection with an assault last year, has filed a $15 million lawsuit against the township, police department and board of education, according to a NorthJersey.com report.

Troy Zaffino was among nine Wayne Hills football players arrested and charged last year for beating two students from Wayne Valley High School. Zaffino's charges were dismissed earlier this year.

Zaffino is reportedly suing for false arrest and violation of his constitutional rights.
