Park ranger reportedly attacked by skateboarder in Philadelphia

Philadelphia police are investigating a video that shows a skateboarder kicking a city park ranger while others stand by laughing.

TV station WCAU reports that the video was turned over to police. The station says Mariano Verrico of Essex Fells, New Jersey took the video at Philadelphia's Love Park.

Verrico says the ranger "got kicked in the head repeatedly and spit on." Verrico says the park ranger warned several young men that they had to stop skateboarding in the park because there were too many children in the area.

The city renovated the park in 2002 and reopened it with a permanent ban on skateboarding. But there have been other reported incidents between skateboarders and authorities in recent years.
