What’s the best thing to do if you’re so drunk that they won’t let you into a strip club? If you answered “Break into the bouncer’s car and steal his wallet and gun” you would also likely be heading to jail like former U of Montana assistant football coach Tyler “I’ll Have Another” Gregorak. Details on the story from KBZK in Bozeman:
A former assistant football coach at the University of Montana is facing trespassing and theft charges for reportedly stealing a gun and a wallet at a Colorado strip club. Tyler Gregorak, who was an assistant in Montana before following Head Coach Bobby Hauck to UNLV, was arrested last month in Boulder.
Police there say Gregorak stole the gun and wallet from the car of a bouncer who wouldn’t let him into the Nitro strip club because he was too drunk. Police say he returned the items and apologized later that day.

Could an errant bagel, allegedly thrown from a high school tennis team bus, end the career of one of the country’s most successful boy’s tennis coaches? Connie Jones of Greenwich High School (CT) hopes not, but she is battling the school district over an incident that started with an errant breakfast pastry and ended–allegedly–with a state trooper being shoved
Greenwich High School’s highly successful boys tennis coach, arrested last month after allegedly shoving a state trooper on the way back from a match, plans to fight the school district’s recent decision to terminate her. Connie Jones, who has led the Cardinals to 10 league championships and seven Class LL state titles, received a letter from the district Wednesday notifying her that she won’t be allowed to keep her job as head boys varsity tennis coach next season.
Jones, 56, will remain on paid administrative leave until the end of the 2009-10 tennis season, but the district will not renew her contract for the 2010-11 season, Superintendent of Schools Sidney Freund wrote in a letter to parents Thursday.
The superintendent’s action comes more than a month after Jones was arrested and charged with second-degree breach of peace after police said she got into a “shoving match” with a trooper during an April 20 traffic stop near exit 2 on Interstate 95. The stop occurred after a motorist told the trooper her car had just been hit by a bagel hurled from the tennis team’s bus on the highway. The team was returning from a match in Westchester, N.Y.
It used to be, you either had to taunt your opponents in person, or maybe spray some graffiti on their school. Today, the taunting is being done online, with sites like Facebook and Twitter as the weapons of choice. Is that what happened to prompt a fight between a coach and several players at a girls softball game in Connecticut? Here’s more from the story from The Day:
A Bacon Academy softball coach and two opposing players were arrested Monday after a fight that police said started warming up long before the first pitch. Montville police were called to the high school just before 6 p.m. for a report of a disturbance following the softball game. Lt. Leonard Bunnell said the incident involved a large fight that resulted in three arrests but no injuries. Bunnell said the fight stemmed from “something that has been brewing for while, fermenting on Facebook.”
Mark Correia, 49, of 54 Heatherwood Drive, Colchester, and a player from each team was charged with breach of peace. The players’ names were not released because they are youthful offenders.
