That happened in Toronto, Canada... You can watch the video report. http://www.citynews.ca/news/news_3973.aspx Rink Rage Trial Continues Thursday September 28, 2006 It goes without saying that Canadians are passionate about hockey, but far too often that passion can boil over into acts of so-called 'rink-rage', where overzealous parents lose control of their emotions while watching their children participate in the sport. That unfortunate scenario allegedly took place at a minor hockey game in the GTA on Jan, 16, 2005, resulting in charges against Bradley Desrocher, 48, who is accused of assaulting the coach of his eight-year-old son. Desrocher has pleaded guilty to assault, but not guilty of assault causing bodily harm, a more serious charge. On Thursday the court heard that Desrocher approached coach Mark Teskey and berated him for benching his son. Teskey claims he was chocked into unconsciousness from behind shortly after. Assistant coach John Lyons testified that he saw Desrocher rush over and stand behind the bench's glass partition, then use both hands to choke the helpless coach. Lyons and five or six other men in the stands worked to pry him loose. "I'm a big guy," said the 6-foot-5 heavy-equipment salesman. "It took everything I had to get his hands off Mark's neck." "It's a very traumatic event," adds witness Craig Sands. "It's disturbing to see one father on the team, you know, basically assaulting another father and, you know, 9-year-old children.look up and wonder what the heck is going on." Bradley Desrocher is already banned from his son's games for five years, but his legal penalty could be far more serious.
