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.

Ah, it is that time of year. The long, carefree summer days filled with bike rides, lemonade and the occasional assault on a Little League umpire.
At the Artesian Little League field in Martinsville, Indiana there’s a sign that reads “Remember, it’s just a game! And it’s just for kids!” Apparently, the adults in Martinsville can’t read because two coaches (correction the LOSING coaches) started arguing with an umpire Josh Moscrip following an extra innings game in the first round of the league tournament. This happened near midnight, just after the teams shook hands to demonstrate good sportsmanship.
But, instead of taking the loss like adults, the two coaches went after Moscrip and, at one point, he claims he was head-butted. According to reports, the coaches and the umpire continued to fight right there on the field in full view of about a dozen of parents, and about 30 12-year-old boys. One of the accused coaches (who is not named in the story because he has not been formally charged) says he’s not proud of what happened, but also tried to make it sound like both he and Moscrip were at fault. Apparently the umpire does not see it that way as he has filed charges against the coaches.

Now there’s a caring coach for ya!
All Hermantown High School (MN) assistant golf coach Kyle “Put It on My Tab’ Ernst was trying to do was cheer his players up. And why not? The Hermantown Hermits boys team fell one stroke–ONE STROKE!–short of winning the state golf championship being held near Shakopee last week. Crushing, just crushing. You can just see the tears welling up in their little eyes, can’t you?
So, Ernst did what any coach would do; he did his best to console both the boys and girls teams and he went out and bought a couple of cases of beer, a 12 pack of hard cider and a 40 ouncer. He then, allegedly, brought it back to the hotel where the team was staying and started the party. The only problem? Pretty much everyone but Ernst, 26, is underage and really not allowed to consume alcohol, even if they did just lose the state championship by ONE STROKE. There’s gotta be an exception in the manual for that, doesn’t there officer?
We’ll spare you the long details of how Ernst got caught (it involved some members of the team trying to drunkenly buy lottery tickets at 3 am) but needless to say, neither the cops nor the school were happy with his coaching methods. Ernst now faces one count of gross misdemeanor furnishing alcohol to someone younger than 21, and likely will not return to Hermantown next season, even though his team lost in the state championship by one lousy stroke.
Hey, if that happens, can someone buy this guy a beer to help him drown his sorrows?
