Dad Pulls Gun On Coach

By  | 

Philadelphia police say a father pulled a gun on a youth football coach because his young son wasn't getting enough playing time.

Wayne Derkotch is accused of pulling the gun Sunday during a game involving six and seven-year-olds in northeast Philadelphia. No shots were fired.

Derkotch was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment.

A referee who allegedly threw a punch at a man was also arrested on assault charges. But police say it's unclear if that fight was related to the first altercation.
