Losing Sixth Grade Basketball Coach Attacks Winning Coach, Bites His Ear

Timothy Lee Forbes, an assistant coach for a sixth-grade basketball team in Springfield, MA, faces assault charges after allegedly attacking the winning coach and biting his ear.

From the Hartford Courant:

“The biter,” as police described him, fled before police arrived, but he turned himself in to police shortly before noon Monday. He was charged with mayhem, for biting the ear, assault and battery, and other charges. He was to be arraigned Monday afternoon.

The alleged biter attacked the winning coach after the game and was pulled off after a brief, but violent assault by bystanders, police said. The victim, 34, was rushed to Baystate Medical Center for treatment.

Reminder: The “brief but violent assault” happened at a 6th grade basketball game. [Courant]
