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.) Holy Name School following his Springfield Heat's loss to the Sprinfield Migs in the Springfield Catholic Youth Organization middle school basketball finals.

Maybe this savage is looking for a part in "The Hangover 3"?

No pics of the victim. Hmmm...

Unabashed cursing and virulent personal attacks are becoming more common on FR lately. Disappointing.

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?

Just how did I reinforce your point? All I did was ask what the he** your comment had to do with the article, a legitimate question, and asked you if your candidate had been bad mouthed on FR. That is usually why some FReeper complains about rudeness and profanity, his feelings are hurt due to his candidate isn't loved.

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.

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.)

The perp, Timothy Forbes. I've my suspicions of why they do not name or picture the victim.

And you are correct as to the reason for the complete blackout on info about the victim until the story died down.

The victim of the attack is Jose Feliciano

And your guess would be wrong. See #27 and 28 and you will know the reason for the info blackout regarding the victim.

Thank you for the update PapaBear3625.

Sure looks like a hate crime to me. Glad to see the judge denied bail for the beast that did this.

Well, I couldn’t have been more hopelessly wrong!

Oh well, thanks for the ping. You know I think I did see a pic of the perp elsewhere, but I didn’think back to this thread.
