A 60-year-old Wisconsin man punched a middle school basketball coach in the face on Wednesday because he was upset at the amount of playing time his son was getting.
West Bend Police did not name the 60-year-old parent or the 62-year-old coach. The altercation took place at the end of an 8th grade game at Badger Middle School, they said.
The parent was arrested on charges of battery to a school employee and disorderly conduct.
“The West Bend Police Department maintains a ZERO TOLERANCE approach to violence or threats of violence in any school setting. All acts of violence or threats of violence will result in an arrest,” police said. “If you observe any violence or threats of violence, SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING and contact a school official or the police department at 262-335-5000.”
