Vernal Youth Football Coach Expects a Handshake; Takes a Punch in the Face Instead

Posted Friday, August 23rd 2013 @ 12pm  by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

A youth football coach in Vernal is one of two people charged in an assault, which resulted in another coach being punched.

Police say the victim reached out to shake hands with the suspect, and caught the punch, instead.

The scuffle took place outside a junior high school, as fifth and sixth grade athletes looked on.

It's not clear why the second man was charged.  Both are ordered to appear before a Vernal justice court judge, next month, on misdemeanor assault charges.
