Yeah, there wasn't that much there, but on the other hand, he's a police captain with no excuse for what he did, and he assaulted a game official, so by charging him I think you send a message that absolutely needs to be sent. I think a misdemeanor charge is highly appropriate here. If the DA drops the charges in exchange for being suspended from coaching and a reprimand from his law enforcement agency, I think that would be a wholly appropriate outcome.

The official is not without blame. There was inexperience involved, for sure. I hope she acknowledges that she could have handled it differently, and more importantly I hope she learns from this and continues to officiate.
