Charging documents reveal that he was upset with the lack of playing time his son was receiving. He then confronted the coaches in the middle of a game, pulled a handgun from his waistband, and pointed it at the coaches, saying “You better put my son into the game,” documents revealed.

After a  reported struggle on the sidelines, one of the coaches grabbed the gun away from them and put it in his car until police arrived.

No injuries were reported during the incident.
