A high school coach in Monroe County is under fire for allegedly abusive behavior.

Lori Moeck of Palmerton, Carbon County has sued the Pleasant Valley School District, and wrestling coach Mark Getz.

Moeck's  son and two daughters were members of the team.

The lawsuit says that in December, Getz let a larger wrestler manhandled her son, before Getz slammed him into a wall.

The suit says the boy, who previously suffered concussions, suffered an asthma attack and other injuries.

The lawsuit also says Getz and his staff perpetrated a physically and verbally abusive culture.
