An Illinois man, John J. Kasik, has been charged with felony telephone harassment, battery and disorderly conduct after allegedly making death threats to his daughter’s high school volleyball coach and the school’s athletic director after his daughter was benched (for her sister). He also allegedly said he would rape the coach’s wife and daughter.
After the match, Kasik, who was in the stands and reportedly angered by the substitution, followed the school athletic director to his house and began yelling at him, at one point saying he would kill the official if his distraught daughter “didn’t make it through the night,” Berlin said.
The athletic director convinced Kasik to come to the school the next day to talk about the matter. Later that evening, Kasik allegedly left several threatening text and phone messages for the volleyball coach, including one in which Kasik threatened to kill the coach and rape the coach’s wife and daughter, Berlin said.
Kasik also met the athletic director the next day, “blocked the door” when he the AD tried to leave and “bumped into him several times.”
