Coach accused of injuring teenager during post-game handshake


If boys will be boys, then what will men be?

Police are mulling over charges against a hockey coach in Vancouver who is accused of intentionally tripping a 13-year-old player during a post-game handshake.

The child suffered a broken wrist due to the fall which, no doubt, looks intentional.

“I don’t ever want to see that coach on a bench behind kids ever again,” said Richmond Steel team manager, Tammy Hohlweg.

“It’s just horrible that a coach would go after a child like that, and what’s even more horrible is that team won.”

The coach has not yet been identified, but RCMP say he was arrested on Saturday and later released. Charges are pending. The tripped boy is now wearing a cast for his broken wrist.
