Little League Coach Attacked
DES MOINES, Iowa -- A Little League baseball coach in Des Moines has been suspended for one game after being accused of attacking another coach in front of kids.
Des Moines police say coach Michael Boehler allegedly attacked coach Steven Dicks at the end of the Grandview Little League's baseball practice Friday. Dicks told police that Boehler grabbed his neck and tried to pull him to the ground as nearby Little League players watched.
Dicks told police he wasn't sure why Boehler attacked him. Des Moines Police spokesman Sergeant Jason Halifax says officers later interviewed Boehler and watched him yell at Dicks. Boehler was charged with simple assault.
The Grandview Little League board later suspended Boehler for one game.
The station reports Boehler declined to comment.
