New Jersey youth football coach accused of assault

Anyone who has worked as a referee or as a coach of a youth league team has likely experienced some degree of verbal abuse from parents. Even though many coaches, for example, are volunteers, they receive a great deal of anger from parents. Unfortunately, one youth league football coach in New Jersey is now charged with assault following an altercation that took place on the field.

The incident happened at a game that took place on a day in October. According to reports, the fight started on the field between players. A hit reportedly turned into shoving. After coaches became involved, parents also came onto the field.

Footage of the alleged fight is said to show a 38-year-old coach throwing a 53-year-old father from the opposing team onto the ground; the video of the event that was originally posted online has since been removed. The parent did not suffer serious injuries during the interaction. Reports indicate that the coach turned himself in after he learned that he was facing criminal charges as a result of the incident.

The coach was released after he was charged with felony simple assault. Though this charge is typically not an indictable offense, a simple assault that occurs at a youth sport event is considered a felony in New Jersey. Unfortunately, the criminal justice system can be complicated for people who have little experience with it, making it difficult for them to make informed decisions about their case. As a result, many hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to help them as they navigate the process.
