Dad Knocks Coach Out Because His Daughter Was Forced To Run Laps
Just when you think you’ve heard it all comes a story like this one. An Indiana father is facing serious charges [DUH] after a brutal attack on his daughter’s assistant middle school basketball coach.
So what caused it? One of the coach’s implementation of an incredibly simple and traditional practice: He made her run laps in the gym.
Shelly Miller, aged 37, attacked Michigan City (Ind.) St. Stanislas School assistant middle school girls basketball coach Jeffrey Yackus shortly after one of the team’s daily practice concluded. The punishment was handed out because Miller’s daughter and another player argued with each other during practice. Yet the only punishment that Yackus dished out was making the two girls run laps in the school’s gym.
When her Father picked up his daughter later, she told her Father about her punishment and he immediately attacked the coach by punching him in the face that leveled the assistant coach, but then Miller climbed on top of him and repeatedly punched him in the face and head until he was completely unconscious.
Miller was arrested on Class C felony battery charges and was held on $15,000 bond, which he posted shortly thereafter. Meanwhile, the school confirmed that his daughter and the rest of the family were no longer affiliated with the school in any way.
And to think, the entire incident started with a pair of girl basketball players running laps. Wow! My Dad would have applauded the coach had I done that!!! Let’s hope the judge throws the book at this outstanding Father!
Perhaps he can run laps in jail?
