Springfield, Mass. (The Weekly Vice) - Timothy Forbes, a 34-year-old Massachusetts man was jailed after he allegedly punched and bit off part of a coach's ear after the coach's team won a youth basketball game.
According to police, Forbes attacked the coach while 5th and 6th grade team member shook hands after the game.
Forbes was originally reported to be a coach for one of the Catholic Youth teams that played that day, however, that information is incorrect, according to CYO officials.
Coaches for both teams have confirmed that Forbes had no connection to the teams.
Forbes attorney told the press "Mr Forbes has dedicated his life to coaching his boys and has no prior instances (of violence)."
That statement also seems to be false, considering Forbes reportedly has a prior criminal history that includes arrests for assault and battery, kidnapping and destruction of property.
Forbes was arraigned Monday on charges of mayhem, assault, battery and disorderly person in charge. We suspect the last charge will be dropped, since the league has rejected claims that Forbes coached for the losing team.
The victim was rushed to an area hospital where his ear was successfully reattached.
