Peewee coach given 15-day jail sentence for tripping player
Remember the coach who was so upset after a game involving peewee players that he tripped an opposing player in the handshake line? He's going to spend the next 15 days in a jail cell thinking about it.
Remember the coach in the above video who was so upset after a game involving peewee players that he tripped an opposing player in the handshake line? He's going to spend 15 days in a jail cell.
Martin Tremblay of Richmond, British Columbia, had previously done some community service but a judge decided that just wasn't enough. Again, these are peewee players we're talking about.
From the Associated Press:
The 48-year-old pleaded guilty to one count of assault in November.
Richmond provincial court Judge Patrick Chen gave Tremblay jail time, saying he wasn't satisfied that time served in the community was enough to denounce or deter the man for his actions.
This is a reminder that what he did was pretty despicable. They're just kids, man.
As somebody who officiates youth sports all I can say is relax, people. It's a game, games are supposed to be fun.
