Coaches caught drunk driving with one of their athletes in the car? Now that’s a little less common, but it still, unfortunately, it happens.
But a coach who is actually drinking while driving with a teen in tow, missing a turn, hitting a street sign, jumping a guard rail AND THEN SLAMMING INTO A TREE? Sounds like he should jump out and yell, “Ta da!” except in this case the cops arrived before he could celebrate this motoring miracle and he decided to assault the officer instead of doing the Olympic gymnast victory pose. Too bad, based on the difficulty of the maneuver he likely would have received a perfect 10 from the drunk Russian judge (are there any other kind.)
Okay, okay, you’re probably worried about the kid in the car. He’s fine . . . although he’ll never to get into a car to talk to an angry, drunk coach about his disappointing “C” grades ever again.
Needless to say, Sussex Tech assistant wrestling coach and English teacher Kurt L. Scheck faces a buttload of charges as a result of his little Evil Knievil stunt jump, including driving under the influence, resisting arrest with force or violence, driving with a suspended license, failure to have insurance, careless driving and endangering the welfare of a child. Oh, and there was something about a road rage incident last summer, but that is only going to be the icing on the legal cake for Coach Scheck after all this.
For those golfers out there who ever worried about someone stealing their cart while they’re putting, some teenager in Cape Coral, Florida just make your nightmare come true. Seems there were two old guys not paying attention to their electric vehicle and a much faster teen jumped in and took off. The good news? He tossed out their two bags of golf clubs (probably to lighten the load). The bad news? He kept a number of other valuable items, such as a wallet, cash, a GPS, a cell phone, a money clip, some golf club head covers . . . and a snappy sleeveless brown sweater.
So, BadJocks readers in Florida: be on the lookout for a teenager tooling around in a golf cart, talking on a cell phone, following directions from a GPS and wearing what looks like his grandpa’s clothes. Call the cops if you see him, but please take a picture for us first.
The victim, a resident of North Fort Myers, and his partner were putting at one of the holes at the Coral Oak Gold Course, at 1800 N.W. 28th Ave., when the man looked over his shoulder and saw his rental cart being driven off by an unknown teenager Wednesday afternoon.
According to a police report, the teen appeared between 15 and 18 years of age and was wearing a black and white shirt. The teen dumped both golf club bags, but he took the victim’s wallet, a GPS, a cell phone, a money clip, golf club head covers, cash and a sleeveless brown sweater. The stolen items are valued at approximately $693. The cart is worth about $4,000. It is beige and has the sticker “74″ on it.
You know, at most high schools, if there is going to be a brawl during a basketball game it usually involves the players. Or at least a coach and some players or some fans and some players. Rarely do the athletes sit back and just watch the drama unfold, but that is exactly what happened in Charlotte, NC during a game between the Butler Bulldogs and the East Mecklenburg Eagles. Apparently a Butler player’s father got into an argument when a school resource officer (read that as a police officer who spends his whole time keeping kids at one school out of trouble) asked the man’s daughter to sit on the opposite side of the gym with her own school’s fans. The two of them got into it, then the man’s wife and daughter jumped in and started hitting the officer on the head. Ultimately only dad got arrested and could face a number of charges related to the incident. Watch the video for yourself below.
