A youth football coach in California, 36 year old Cory Petero, is caught on camera tackling a 13 year old boy.

It's a sight parents and coaches say they can't get out of their minds, but at the same time, they say it's almost expected these days.

One local Pueblo sports official, Dave Dudley says, he holds his breathe every time he's at a game, waiting for someone to get out of control.

The coach from California turned himself into police and was charged with felony child abuse. The coach's son was also playing that day. It was a late hit from the other player that prompted Petero to slam into the 13 year old boy.
