Dad Should Have Stayed In The Bleachers

Youth wrestling is under way in Montana and spectators at a wrestling tournament in Butte got their admissions worth as a dad picked a fight with his son’s coach. I’m a very enthusiastic wrestling parent myself but come on. This is one of the reasons why they ask parents and spectators to stay in the bleachers and let the coaches do their jobs.

An Anaconda man faces a charge of disorderly conduct after witnesses said he fought with his son’s wrestling coach during a weekend tournament in Butte.

KXLF-TV reports 26-year-old William Johnson was arrested Saturday afternoon at the Butte Civic Center.

Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff John Walsh says police responded to a report of an assault at about 4 p.m. Walsh says those involved told police that Johnson was unhappy with the way the referee was scoring a match involving his son and started yelling at the referee. The boy’s coach intervened and the father reportedly attacked the coach, with the fight taking place on the wrestling mat.

Walsh says the coach didn’t want to press charges, but information police received led to the charge. No one was injured in the fight.
