The New York Daily News reports an 18 year old former Harrison track star, now a freshman at Binghamton University, was beaten by a New York City subway conductor on Sunday for putting his feet on the seat.

Iraqi-born Zaid Al-Doori immigated to the United States in 2008 and helped lead Harrison’s High School track team to competitive success.

The story of this journey from war-torn Baghdad to American track star was featured last year in the Journal News.
