A hockey coach has been charged with a misdemeanor count of assault & battery after punching the opposing team’s coach during a brawl on the ice.
The incident began when the two coaches, one from Allen Park and one from Taylor, had a verbal confrontation. According to reports, the Allen Park coach told the Taylor coach that he was a bad coach and a poor sportsman. The Taylor coach then shoved the Allen Park coach onto the ice.
Moments later a large group of people rushed onto the ice and began fighting. When a referee tried to break up the fight and help the Allen Park coach off the ice, the Taylor coach jumped on top of the referee and began punching the Allen Park coach in the face repeatedly.
The Taylor coach was arrested and charged with assault & battery, but was later released after posting $300 bond.
