Another disturbing story about out-of-control parents and youth sports. An angry dad attacked a 6th grade basketball coach after his son's team lost a game, then bit off part of the coach's ear.
The stricken coach was rushed to a local hospital where he underwent surgery to have the severed portion of his ear reattached.
The attack occurred Friday night at Holy Name School in Springfield, Mass., according to local TV station WWLP. After his son's team lost in the Catholic Youth Organization finals, Timothy Lee Forbes punched the winning coach, then bit off part of his ear, said Hampden assistant district attorney Marie Angers. Several of the 10-12 year old kids, who had gathered on the court to shake hands, were knocked to the floor and left crying after the incident.
