Ladies: This is why guys will break up you using a text. They want to avoid these kinds of situations.
Here’s the basics, according to police: the boyfriend of Elizabeth Hadley Appenzeller, the cheerleading coach at Coastal Carolina University, went to her house over the weekend to pick up some of his belongings after the couple broke up. At some point Appenzeller jumped in the bed of his pick-up truck and refused to get out, meaning he could not safely drive away, so he called police.
You’d think when the cops got there she’d get the message, right? Wrong! According to the cops, Appenzeller refused to get out of the truck and became “loud and boisterous and used profanity while standing in the road way.” It was at that point that officers asked the coach to quiet down and not use profanity because they were standing not far from a park were a local baseball or softball team was practicing. Nope. So they had to arrest her and when they did, Appenzeller allegedly continued to scream, begged police not to arrest her and, to top things off, kicked officers until they had to handcuff her.
On Sunday she was charged with resisting arrest and public disorderly/public intoxication, and Monday cops added assault on a police officer and first-offense criminal domestic violence charges.
You want your youth coaches to be “hands on” but not to the point that they are putting their “hands on” a player from the opposing team. Especially when those hands are allegedly closed fists. This case involves a California high school soccer coach, Bart Allen, whose team reportedly got into it with a rival last week and a brawl broke out. Our favorite part of the story is where Allan admist to cops he threw punches in the melee, but denies hitting any kids. Wait, what?
Teen players from rival teams got into a fight Monday after a game in Simi Valley, Calif., KTLA-TV reported. Bart Allan, 47-year-old head coach of the Conejo Valley United team, allegedly ran onto the field and joined in the melee. He hit a 16-year-old player for the opposing Antelope Valley team in the face, witnesses said. Allan admitted to cops that he ran into the fray and threw punches, but denied actually hitting any of the kids. The 16-year-old’s parents, however, said they were seeking medical treatment for their son’s nose and cheek injuries. No one else was injured in the brawl.
Bryan Craig was the girls basketball coach at Rich Central High School and a guidance counselor at the suburban Chicago school. That is, until Craig wrote a book. No, the issue was not that he wrote it on school time. Apparently the issue that caused district superintendent, Donna Simpson Leak, to put Craig on leave pending a district review was the subject matter of a book called “It’s Her Fault”: sex. And it’s a not a clinical “Dr. Ruth” type book on sex. This appears to be a “how to score with chicks’ type of book.
Really? Is that a taboo subject for a man who coaches impressionable young women?
Oh yeah, probably. The good news? It is available on Amazon.com, but so far has received only 2 out of 5 stars, including this detailed review: “This is a disgusting piece of crap and no woman in her right mind would want to be anywhere near a man who believed in anything written here.”
Here’s more on the story:
In the forward to the book, titled “It’s Her Fault,” Craig says his intention is to give women a guide to gaining the “upper hand in a relationship” because he is tired of hearing them complain. The book contains graphic details on his observations of the female anatomy, including what he describes as physical differences between ethnicities that lead him to conclude that “Latin women have more children.”
Among the assertions in the book is that all men and women should be promiscuous before getting married.
He also writes, “The easiest kill for a man is through the young lady with low self-esteem. Of course some will feel this is taking advantage, and yes it is. The ultimate goal for a man is to do all he can to eventually be able to commit and submit to a woman’s power.”
According to Amazon.com, the 60-page book was published Aug. 2. In the book, Craig also reveals that he moonlights as a strip club bouncer. He says the job allows him to blow off steam, manage his anger and be nicer to his wife.
No, it’s not on the same scale as the scandal at Penn State, but it’s a related disease.
Someone thinks they’re doing the right thing to protect or help a sports program. Who will ever know, and if it helps a kid improve his life, what’s the big deal?
In this case, the big deal is that an assistant football coach/math teacher at Forest Hill High School (FL) was charged with two felony counts of falsifying documents and receiving unlawful compensation. Translated: Michael Stephen Dudeck, 55, who also runs a tutoring company, created fake classes and grades for a couple of jocks so they could play football last fall. And did he do it simply out of the goodness of his heart? Apparently no, as one of the players said they paid Dudeck $300 for the chance to NOT go to class and still pass.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: it’s possible the post-game handshake between youth sports teams has outlived its usefulness. Yes, 99% of the time nothing happens, but on a more frequent basis the calm exchange of pleasantries is used as a way to retaliate against an unwitting opponent who thinks the action has stopped. In the past, we’ve had cheap shot punches, kids with tacks hidden in their gloves and other nastiness. Now comes possibly the worst thing we’ve seen: an youth hockey coach uses the post game handshake to trip an opposing player, 13, causing the kid to fall and break his wrist. And his team even one the game!
Was it just an accident? Unlikely as the coach takes a wide swing with his leg (something you don’t do while wearing shoes on the ice) and then points at the fallen player as if to say “you know why I did that.” Still, even if the kid did the most unspeakable hockey thing you can imagine (keeping all his own teeth until he’s an adult) that’s no reason to trip him.
Word on the street is that police in British Columbia are looking at this video and considering filing charges.
The good news? Kennedy High School (CA) assistant baseball coach Pedro Cruz Trujillo is taking your kid to Dodger Stadium to see a game. The bad news? They might be smoking a little weed along the way.
Right now, it’s just an accusation, but police have arrested Trujillo on six counts of child endangering and is being held on $100,000 bail after another teacher at the school overheard the players (AKA dumbasses) talking about getting high in the car as Trujillo drove them (aged 14 to 16) to the game. He could also face charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
In his defense, being high is about the only way to watch a Dodgers game these days, but that’s probably not a good idea when you have other people’s kids with you.
