Timothy Lee Forbes of Springfield, Mass very much cares about his son’s basketball team. Very. Much.
After a loss in the Catholic Youth Organization finals, Forbes confronted the opposing coach of the 6th grade team and attacked him. The fight ended with parents pulling Forbes from the man, but not before he had bitten off part of the coach’s ear. Forbes then fled the scene, but was later arrested and charged with mayhem, assault and battery, and other criminal charges.
The victim was taken to the hospital where his ear was reattached and was released from the hospital.
