In one of the most bizarre and troubling incidents in recent youth sports history, an assistant coach of a Massachusetts middle school basketball team channeled his inner Mike Tyson after a 6th grade basketball championship, attacking the coach of a team which defeated his side and biting his opponent's ear.
According to Springfield, Mass. news network WWLP, 34-year-old Timothy Forbes was charged with mayhem, assault and batter and disorderly conduct on Monday in Springfield District Court after turning himself in to police. The charges follow Forbes' attack on an unnamed fellow middle school basketball coach at Springfield (Mass.)

No pics of the victim. Hmmm...
“Who Needs Two Ears?” PING
Unabashed cursing and virulent personal attacks are becoming more common on FR lately. Disappointing.
It’s an Obama world...
Contact the Admin to pull the thread if you’re offended.
Sad story on the state of our society.
Teach your children well.
Just be grateful they can't reach your ears. BTW, what the he** does your comment have to do with the article? Is your favorite candidate(whoever that may be)not to the liking of some FReepers?
Wow, thanks for reinforcing my point.
Yeesh... saw this story on our local news tonight. Talk about taking a stupid little kid’s game too seriously...
What I said to you was neither rude nor profane, you complain too much, try to get a life will you?
BTW, I notice you didn't answer my questions about your comments all you did was complain some more.
6th grade? Seriously, this man needs help and some drug therapy - stat!
Gotta ping you to LOL at your tagline. That is a great ad!
I don’t mean to pile on, but what are you talking about?
There was no cursing or personal attacks, unless there is something in the linked article, which I didn’t read, but I doubt anything like that is in there.
And, it’s Massachusetts, a Catholic school league, my guess is that ALL involved are white, and you know....IRISH. (Full disclaimer - as am I.)
Wish there was video.
