New Mexico Dentist Jailed

Compiled From Wire Services

An Albuquerque dentist was jailed over the weekend, his punishment for sharpening a buckle on his son’s football helmet so that it cut several opposing players in a game last fall.

Stephen Cito was serving his 48-hour jail term in a satellite facility of the City-County Jail. Cito and his son, Mike Cito, a former lineman at Albuquerque’s St. Pius High School, were sentenced in December to community service and probation. The father also was ordered to spend two days in jail and his son was banned from athletic competition for a year.

Mike Cito also was expelled from the Catholic high school.
