Dad Brings Son To Pop Warner Practice Late, Ends Up Getting Beat Up By The Coach


The world of youth sports is once again showing us the sort of sportsmanship that kids are learning these days.

Michael VonKahle was 10 minutes late bringing his 12-year-old son, Tyler, to his Pop Warner practice in Wilmington, Massachusetts. Coach William Reynolds made the boy start to run laps, but his father stepped in, saying that the boy should not be punished for the father’s inability to get him there on time.

The two men continued to argue, but what happened next is unclear. Both men went elsewhere to resolve their dispute, and when all was said and done, VonKahle was laying on the ground and Reynolds was gone. Both sides said the other threw the first punch, while Reynolds said he was defending himself against an overzealous parent.

Whoever started it, Reynolds was clearly the one who ended it. VonKahle ended up being taken to the hospital in an ambulance, where he was then treated for three fractures around his left eye socket, two fractures on his nose, a torn rotator cuff, and a concussion.

No charges have been filed yet, but the coach has been suspended by the league. Meanwhile, Tom Cable is whistling quietly and slowly heading for the door.
