COACH JARED GALLAGHER ATTACKED PLAYER, 12, DAD
Gallagher was initially charged with misdemeanor child abuse, misdemeanor possession of a weapon on school grounds and misdemeanor resisting, delaying or obstructing a public officer. He was released on bond but things got tougher for him Sunday when he was charged with: felony kidnapping, felony strangulation and misdemeanor interfering with emergency communication and
carrying a concealed weapon.
Cops say Gallagher choked the 12-year-old as they walked into the locker and held him in a choke hold until "he turned blue." Head coach Doug Pruitt tried to intervene. Our hero, was having none of it and had his arm twisted to keep him from calling 911. A parent stepped him. Punches erupted. Gallagher--hired to oversee student suspensions--is now suspended. We'd like to hope he will no longer be working with children and molding young minds. MEATHEAD FOOTBALL COACH ATTACKS KID, PARENTS
