Parent with Gun Threatens Coach
October 22, 2006 (WPVI) -- A peewee football game turned violent Sunday when a parent began fighting with the coach, and allegedly pulled out a loaded gun.
During the game that started at 10am Sunday morning at Burholme Park, a father of a player started arguing with the coach because his son wasn't playing enough.
The father and the coach started fist fighting and the father allegedly pulled out a 357 magnum loaded with 5 live rounds after the coach started getting the upper hand in the fight.
When the police arrived they witnessed one of the football referee punching the brother of the man with the gun. Police now have two men in custody.
The teams were the Burholme Outlaws and the Oxford Circle Raiders.
The Raiders players said that they were scared when they saw what was happening on the other sideline.
